Our training for prospective program evaluators is designed to simulate the actual ABET program review process. Successful completion of PEVC Training is the first step in becoming an ABET Program Evaluator, and all PEV candidates are assigned a mentor from their member society, who will provide support and feedback throughout the candidate training process.
evaluator is an open source quantitative risk analysis toolkit. Based on the OpenFAIR ontology and risk analysis standard, evaluator empowers an organization to perform a quantifiable, repeatable, and data-driven risk review.
Install evaluator via the standard CRAN mechanisms. If you wish to use the optional, but recommended, reporting functions, also install the suggested dependencies. These additional packages are not needed for modeling, but are used in the generation of reports.
A detailed guide is available in the vignette accessed via vignette("usage", package="evaluator"). A short screencast showing the basic workflow (not including generation of reports) is available below:
While evaluator is a powerful tool, it does not attempt to address interactions between risk scenarios, rolling up multiple levels of risk into aggregations, or other advanced topics. As you become more comfortable with quantitative risk analysis, you may wish to dive deeper into these areas (and I hope you do!). The following resources may help you explore these and other topics in risk management.
Domestic Violence Evaluators provide the court with valuable information when working with persons convicted of domestic assault, domestic battery, or attempted strangulation. The evaluation submitted to the court includes a risk assessment, identifies possible substance abuse or mental health issues, and provides recommendations to the judge in several key areas. More information regarding the qualifications of an evaluator and the reports submitted to the court is located in Idaho Criminal Rule 33.3 and Idaho Court Administrative Rule 75.

In such cases, a second observation/school visit shall be conducted by one or more evaluators selected and trained by the district, who are different than the evaluator(s) who conducted the observations/school visits required to be performed by the principal/supervisor or other trained administrator.
At its June 2016 meeting, the Board of Regents amended sections 30-3.4 and 30-3.5 of the Rules of the Board of Regents related to the Observation and School Visit Categories of APPRs completed pursuant to Education Law 3012-d to allow districts and BOCES to apply, on an annual basis, for a hardship waiver from the requirement for a second observation/school visit by an impartial independent trained evaluator, commencing with the 2016-17 school year if they believe compliance with this requirement will create an undue burden for certain enumerated resources.
Providers must maintain their discipline-specific credential in order to maintain the evaluator credential. It the discipline-specific credential goes inactive, so will the evaluator credential.
The Department of State Hospitals-Forensic Services Division is hiring contract psychologist and psychiatrists as forensic evaluators Sexually Violent Predators (SVP) and Offenders with Mental Health Disorders (OMD).
Work Location: DSH is recruiting evaluators who will travel to a variety of locations throughout the state including state prisons, state hospitals, county jails and county courts to perform these specialized evaluations and provide expert testimony.
Psychologists and psychiatrists interested in becoming independent evaluators for BPH must submit an OMD Independent Evaluator application and be approved by the DSH. OMD Independent Evaluators will provide specialty evaluation services including:
Qualified medical evaluators (QMEs) are qualified physicians who are certified by the Division of Workers' Compensation - Medical Unit to examine injured workers to evaluate disability and write medical-legal reports. The reports are used to determine an injured worker's eligibility for workers' compensation benefits. QMEs include medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, doctors of chiropractic, dentists, optometrists, podiatrists, psychologists and acupuncturists.
The law requires that each home education student be interviewed, and their portfolio reviewed by a qualified home education evaluator each school year. The evaluator's written certification that an appropriate education is occurring must be submitted by the home education supervisor to the superintendent of the student's district of residence by June 30 of each school year (24 P.S. 13-1327.1(e),(h.1)).
Since no time can be recorded toward the mandatory hours or days until the affidavit is submitted to the school district (the affidavit begins the program), the evaluator can consult the notarized affidavit to determine the start date of the program if questions arise.
Concerns may include such things as whether the home education supervisor is qualified, whether anyone living in the home has been convicted of a criminal offense that would render the program invalid, or whether the program was conducted in English. A qualified home education evaluator may certify whether the program is in compliance, given appropriate documentation or evidence by the supervisor of the program (24 P.S. 13-1327.1(j.1)).
Act 196 of 2014 provides for state-recognized supervisor-issued diplomas for students completing the graduation requirements of a home education high school diploma. This diploma must be on a form provided by PDE, and must be co-signed by the evaluator whose evaluation was submitted to the superintendent for the student's twelfth grade (graduation) year (24 P.S. 13-1327.1(d.1)).
The twelfth grade evaluator that co-signs the home education high school diploma confirms that the student is suitable for graduation. A determination that a student is suitable for graduation, that is, that the graduation requirements have been met, is more extensive in review than a yearly evaluation.
If the twelfth grade evaluator has not evaluated all of the student's high school portfolios, the evaluator will need sufficient evidence of completion of all courses required for graduation in the home education program. In light of this, evaluators may consider providing a signed listing each year to the supervisor documenting the courses they have reviewed. Parents can save these yearly evaluations as evidence of course completion for the twelfth grade evaluator. Evaluators may consider keeping a record of evaluations they have completed and a list of the students for whom they have signed diplomas.
The evaluator may offer to add a notation to the twelfth grade evaluation submitted to the superintendent stipulating that the graduation requirements have been met so that the school district can document the home education graduation. If the student's diploma is lost or misplaced and the twelfth grade evaluator cannot be located to sign a replacement, there will be another official record that it exists.
At the request of the supervisor, persons with other qualifications may conduct the evaluation with the prior consent of the district of residence superintendent. If the superintendent has confidence in the evaluator's ability to do a credible job, they may allow that person to evaluate, regardless of degrees or teaching experience (24 P.S. 13-1327.1(e)(2)). The supervisor should receive permission to use an evaluator with "other qualifications" well before the evaluation is due to ensure the choice is acceptable.
NOTE: The supervisor or the spouse of the supervisor of the home education program is not allowed to be the evaluator for their home education program, regardless of any qualifications (24 P.S. 13-1327.1(e)(2)).
The law specifically exempts evaluators and private tutors from having to maintain an active status for Act 48 Continuing Professional Development. This means an evaluator does not have to maintain Act 48 hours (24 P.S. 12-1205.1).
The home education supervisor may select anyone to evaluate their student's portfolios, as long as that individual fulfills one of the five qualifications. The choice of evaluator selected by the supervisor cannot be denied as long as that individual meets the vocational criteria.
