Transcript of SMART Credentials
ICE R&D Committee Task Force on Certification Construct:
: the likelihood that someone will be able to achieve the certification program requirements
: the likelihood that the certification program as constructed will have the outcome it promises
: lower error rates, reduced cost
: the ability of the organization to represent the competence of its credential holders
: the measurable effect of the program on the credential holder
Decay: The process by which assessments lose relevance due to lack of reinforcement (e.g., the “forgetting curve”).
Feasibility and Validity
The impact a program has on its environment
Competency Shelf Life
How are you doing?
Stakeholders need to understand what a credential promises.
SMART principles offer a framework for a certification construct.
Scope and Level
: a definition of the competencies governed by the credential (often codified in the form of job/practice analysis and role delineation studies).
: the kind and depth of the competencies addressed by the credential (knowledge/skill/ability and knows/does/masters)
The quantatitive characteristics of the program
: work experience, academic achievement
: passing standards
: continuing competence measures and indicators
: measurable differences in practice
A construct is a theoretical model constructed to represent a human characteristic or trait.
: How well does the construct of your credential meet SMART goals?
: Do you publicize information about your credential consistent with SMART goals?
: How well does your program implementation match your construct?
Obsolescence: the process by which assessments lose relevance due to practice changes (e.g., technical advancement)
Shelf Life: The period within which an assessment reliably predicts a level of competence. Shelf life is a function of knowledge decay and obsolescence.
