The Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation (JCSEE) was founded in 1975 as a collaborative effort between professional organizations in the U.S. and Canada that are concerned with the quality of evaluations being produced. The Evaluation Center at WMU was also involved in the creation of the JCSEE and housed the organization for many years. Over the past four decades, the JCSEE has published sets of standards through three major publications: •The Program Evaluation Standards •The Personnel Evaluation Standards •The Student Evaluation Standards.

The purpose of this project is to: •Help lead the JCSEE in the development of a new strategic plan •Support the creation of a business plan that fits with the strategic plan and is sufficient to financially sustain the JCSEE •Support the creation of a new web site and other materials to further promote the activities of the JCSEE •Determine how the WMU Evaluation Center can continue to play a leading role with the JCSEE.
