In this session, the editorial leadership teams from the three SOPHE journals, Health Education & Behavior, Health Promotion Practice, and Pedagogy in Health Promotion, share expertise, and insights to help you find the best journal “home” for disseminating the important work that you do. The interactive panel will enable participants to engage with editorial team members, who have experience in and passion for supporting researchers, practitioners, and educators in developing and publishing their work. The editorial teams will highlight the importance of understanding a journal’s mission and scope, article format options, and submission and peer review processes. The editors will share advice on best practices for a successful submission.

  • Aligning the CHES® and MCHES® credentialing examinations with HESPA II 2020​​

    Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 06/08/2021 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    The Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis (HESPA) II 2020 reflects contemporary practice of health education specialists and serves as the framework for preparation, credentialing, and continuing education in the profession. As such, the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES®) and Master Certified Education Specialist (MCHES®) credentialing examinations are being revised to reflect the updated competencies and sub-competencies validated by the HESPA II 2020. Notable updates in health education specialist practice reflected in the examinations include an expansion of advocacy and communication competencies, as well as a more prominent emphasis on ethics and professionalism. The revision process includes many stages: setting specifications for examination construction based upon the practice analysis; item bank review; item gap analysis; item writing; exam construction with multiple forms; and standard-setting of the examinations. The revision process is conducted separately for the CHES® and MCHES® examinations. This presentation will review each of the steps undertaken to ensure the validity of the examinations that will be introduced in 2022 and used until 2026. Presenters will also differentiate the CHES® and MCHES® examinations.​
