Iowa Evaluator Approval and Training
On this page...
An administrator and/or evaluator wanting to renew his/her evaluator license currently has three (3) options:
Option 1: Take iEvaluate 1.2 through AEA PD Online for two licensure renewal credits.
Option 2: Take Assessing Academic Rigor as offered through your AEA for two licensure renewal credits.
Option 3: Take Fierce Conversations as offered through your AEA for two licensure renewal credits
If an administrator is new to Iowa or was prepared at an out-of-state preparation institution and seeking an Iowa administrator license, the administrator must take iEvaluate 1.2 through AEA PD Online.
For administrator/evaluator licensure questions, contact Greg Horstmann.
