How do Overviews Work?
During your overview, you and your assessor will listen to your coaching session and record feedback on a shared Google Sheet stored in your class folder. The first overview is designed to introduce you to the process and doesn’t look at the complete coaching standards.
What Score Do I Need?
Coach Training EDU takes a growth mindset approach in our courses and education philosophy. The scoring system is designed to deemphasize the usual judgment, and instead focuses on useful feedback you can use to improve your coaching, while also ensuring that you meet the standards required for certification by Coach Training EDU.
Each overview is scored on a ten-point scale, but the first overview is slightly different. It is designed to be an introduction to the overview process. In alignment with our education philosophy, the first overview does not receive an overall, aggregate score. By not receiving an average score, your focus is encouraged to be on gathering as much useful feedback as possible to be prepared for the following overviews.
In the first overview, each individual element, such as each of the four components of the TIME acronym for setting a session agenda, is scored, but you will not receive a total score for the Establish the Coaching Session section.
Only the 2nd and 3rd overviews receive overall scores that count toward your earning a passing score for the course.
To pass a 1.0 class, you need to complete all three overviews and earn a “Meets Standard | Associate Level” in each of the standards in either overview two or three. (For 2.0 Coach Training, you need an “Exceeds Standard | Professional Level” in each area.)
If you earn a passing score in the second overview, you are still required to complete the third overview. However, the score of the third overview is only for your information. You are encouraged to send in overviews which you feel represent your best coaching.
You may complete a fourth overview at no charge if you have not yet met the necessary standard.
If a coach in training has not received a passing score on the fourth overview and is seeking certification through the program, they can request additional overviews for $75 an overview, as well as request a different assessor(s) for subsequent overviews.
