Iowa Evaluator Approval

Approval Process

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 license renewal credits.
  • Option 2: Take Assessing Academic Rigor as offered through your AEA for two license renewal credits.
  • Option 3: Take Fierce Conversations as offered through your AEA for two license renewal credits

If an administrator is new to Iowa or was prepared at an out-of-state institution and is seeking an Iowa administrator license, the administrator must take iEvaluate 1.2 through AEA PD Online.

Assessing Academic Rigor & Fierce Conversations

Assessing Academic Rigor and Fierce Conversations are two approved Iowa Department of Education evaluator approval trainings offered by Iowa's AEAs.
