Educational Evaluation Standards: The Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation was founded in 1975 to develop standards for educational evaluation. Originally initiated by the American Educational Research Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Council on Measurement in Education, the Joint Committee now includes many other organizations in its membership. AEA is one of those organizations, and has a representative to the Joint Committee. The Joint Committee has developed a set of standards for the evaluation of educational programs as well as for evaluating personnel. Although AEA has not formally adopted these standards, it does support the Joint Committee's work. Further information about the Joint Committee's work and reprint requests may be addressed to: The Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation, The Evaluation Center, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI 49008-5178.
