Predicting Credentialed Evaluator Status: Characteristics, Comparisons, and Implications for the CE Program
Keywords:Credentialed Evaluator, Professional Designation, Evaluation Practice, Professionalization
The CES membership database was analyzed in order to determine the socio-demographic profile that best defines Credentialed Evaluators (CE). In general, those currently holding CE status tend to: be employed in the private sector; have a PhD level education; have long-term experience in evaluation; have a major focus on evaluation within their professional activities; and be located within the Atlantic region, Western Canada, or the National Capital Chapter region. Implications of these trends for the sustainability of the CE designation program and options for broadening the scope of uptake within the CES membership are discussed.
