Canadian Evaluation Society - Competencies

Competencies are defined as "the background, knowledge, skills, and dispositions program evaluators need to achieve standards that constitute sound evaluations. " (adapted from Stevahn, L, King, J., Ghere, G., & Minnema, J.,(2005) Establishing Essential Competencies for Program Evaluators , American Journal of Evaluation, Vol. 26 No. 1, March 2005, pages 43-59) These were developed through research, member consultation and expert validation processes conducted in 2008 and 2009.

While the Competencies for Canadian Evaluation practice were developed as part of the Credentialing Program of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES), they provide a much broader foundation for the evaluation community. The skills and knowledge in any profession or discipline grows and evolves over time. College of Education.
