    • Summary

      The NACE Assessments for Coaching Intensive II expands on fundamental skills gained during the NACE Assessments for Coaching Intensive I workshop. Using knowledge and understanding of reliability and validity of assessments, coaches will examine client support systems for specific student populations, identifying strategies to leverage clients’ progression toward goal attainment.

Coaches will construct a coaching plan and demonstrate effective coaching skills using results of client assessments.

      • Evaluate and identify assessments based on client preference and appropriateness to the coaching plan; and 
      • Create a coaching environment that is conducive to exploration and discovery.
