IAC Scorecard

  • Examiner Details

  • Key for scoring individual Masteries:

    • 0 = No demonstration of the Mastery.
    • 1 = Inaccurately demonstration of the Mastery.
    • 2 = Some demonstration of the Mastery via effective behaviors, but not strong enough to have an effect, or too many ineffective behaviors, or not adequate follow through.
    • 3 = A moderate demonstration of the Mastery whereby there are more effective behaviors than ineffective, or there were strong measures but few effective behaviors, but without follow through of a mastery.
    • 4 = A strong demonstration of the mastery with follow through of the Mastery. Several effective behaviors and measures present, but some of the elements of full mastery were not present (look to key elements, distinctions, etc.). With minimal errors.
    • 5 = Unquestionable masterful demonstration of the Mastery with all or most of the effective behaviors and measures present, full follow through.

    Listen to the coaching session (at least twice), using the transcript as supportive documentation, completing your initial notes and scoring using the IAC Coaching Masteries Note Sheet. Upon thoroughly reviewing the audio and written materials log a numerical score for each Mastery, supported by written examples of coaching behaviors, effects, measures, etc. that you may use in your comments. Base your scores from 0 to 5 on the amount of evidence that you find of the demonstration of the coaching Masteries.

    * When the scoring of a Mastery indicates an equal or nearly equal amount of evidence for two ratings, (e,g. 2 or 3) you may use .5 in scoring (e.g. 2.5).

  • Comments: Please write comments using the IAC Masteries language.  Offer unbiased comments with an overview regarding the demonstration of each Mastery. Include statements regarding which Masteries were strongest and why, and which Masteries were weakest, and why, with specific examples from the transcript. You may site missed opportunities, and suggestions for how the Mastery could be used to reach a higher level of coaching. Please include references to specific dialogue or nuances you noticed, and some of the specific behaviours that the applicant can read, such as Ineffective Behaviors #3 and #4 or Measures #1,#3 and #6.

    Please write your comments below each Mastery.
