Then read through the points below before beginning the self-assessment:

  • To complete the assessment, read each outcome and rate your current progress in accomplishing that outcome using the scoring criteria:3 = Full accomplishment2 = Good progress1 = Need to get started
  • Follow the guidelines at the top of the self-assessment page to help you decide your score for each outcome. Keep in mind that you are beginning the process of becoming a professional and so may rate yourself as a 1 or 2 on many of the items.
  • When you have rated yourself on each outcome, tally your total score, and then check the scoring results at the bottom of the self-assessment page.

Step 2: Reflect on the Results

  • Write a one-page summary of your self-assessment results. Describe insights and new thinking you gained from the assessment and your current state of progress toward becoming a professional.
  • Choose three outcomes that are of special interest or concern to you. For each outcome, write at least one paragraph explaining the reasoning you used to decide how to rate yourself on that outcome and how you hope to grow.
  • Based on this experience, write one paragraph explaining how you could continue to use self-assessment to support your professional development in the future.

Submit your completed self-assessment and your written responses to complete this Application.
