Performance Evaluation

 

To receive certification the following pages explain exactly what your Performance Evaluation will be graded on.

Assessment markers are the indicators that an assessor is trained to listen for to determine which ICF Core Competencies are in evidence in a recorded coaching conversation, and to what extent. The following markers are the behaviors that should be exhibited in a coaching conversation at the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level. These markers support a performance evaluation process that is fair, consistent, valid, reliable, repeatable and defensible.

Preparation

Before preparing for your performance evaluation, study the ICF Core Competencies and observe them in your coaching. Have your Mentor Coach provide feedback on how your coaching demonstrates each of the ICF Core Competencies, and which competencies you might need to practice. The PCC Markers provide information about what assessors are listening for when they conduct your performance evaluation.

Record several coaching sessions and select one session that demonstrate use of a wide variety of the ICF Core Competencies. Review your selected sessions and make sure the conversations are clear, audible and that only first names have been used during the coaching session. The quality and proximity of the recording device used is typically more important than the file bit rate in regards to the overall quality of the recorded file. Inaudible recorded coaching sessions will result in lower scores for the performance evaluation and delays in the credentialing process.
