The American Evaluation Association describes standards and guiding principles for conducting evaluation research. The posts provided in this collection document the violations of these principles in the "2013 Report on Teacher Preparation" released by the NCTQ.
Quoted from website of American Evaluation Association: http://www.eval.org/p/cm/ld/fid=105:
"The Guiding Principles for Evaluators serve as the cornerstone of good evaluation practice. Developed in 1994 as guidelines for sound, ethical practice, they have been broadly vetted with the AEA membership and reviewed and revised at regular intervals, including most recently in 2003, in order to ensure that they remain current with the field.
In 2006-2007, the AEA Ethics Committee worked with a range of evaluators to develop a training package aimed at introducing the Guiding Principles in a workshop format and engaging evaluators in discussion about ethical practice. The resulting package, having been reviewed by an expert panel and approved for distribution by the AEA Board of Directors, is available for use for personal instruction or as a starting point for facilitating a workshop on the Guiding Principles."
