The vision of the Consortium for Research on Educational Assessment and Teaching Effectiveness (CREATE) is improved student learning, development, and achievement in PK-12 schools, institutes of higher education, and other educational settings. To that end, the mission of CREATE is:

  • To advance the field of educational evaluation by providing a forum for the presentation, discussion, and dissemination of sound practices related to personnel, student, and program evaluation, research, and policy.
  • To facilitate a network among those who actively engage in personnel, program, and student evaluation and research, and those who benefit from such activities.
  • To promote the development, dissemination, knowledge, and use of personnel, program, and student evaluation standards, such as those issued by the Joint Committee on Standards in Educational Evaluation.

​Membership is open to any individual or agency interested in educational evaluation, research, and practice.  

CREATE is a sponsoring organization of the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation.
