professional skills assessment


A tool-based observational assessment of a participant’s performance in a career development experience given by an adult supervisor and shared with the participant that addresses foundational professional skills, including, at a minimum, those outlined in the Recommended Technical and Essential Employability Competencies framework. The professional skills assessment tool is to be used primarily as a feedback tool and development strategy and not as the sole basis for a grade or credit determination.


Illinois workNet’s Observational Assessment and Worksite Evaluation tools may be used as a professional skills assessment.
