Pre-Assessment Testing
Upon registering for the Instructor course, all Instructor candidates will be emailed a pre-assessment which is intended to be taken closed-book and without the assistance of another colleague or resources. This pre-assessment should be viewed as the Instructor Candidate’s opportunity to identify their own knowledge strengths and potential weaknesses. Upon arrival at the Instructor course, candidates will have an opportunity to self-grade their own test. Or, if preferred, the pre-assessment can be scored before the course by the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program staff. Instructions will be supplied when the pre-test is emailed regarding how to submit the pre-assessment for scoring.

Please note the following about the pre assessment scores and eligibility to register as an Instructor:
  1. The average score for Instructor candidates is 85% and higher.
  2. If you score between 70% and 62.5% (12 to 15 wrong) we do not think that you are ready for the Lead Instructor role at this time. Rather, if you would like to proceed as an Instructor, we will register you as a Support Instructor when the time comes at the course to register.
  3. If you score 60% or below (16 or more wrong), you are scoring well below the average for Instructor candidates and we cannot register you as an Instructor. We are happy to award you with a Learner course completion card upon successful completion of the mixed module test.
  4. Please note, no refunds will be provided to those who either do not qualify for Lead Instructor or who are not eligible to be registered as an Instructor because of low pre-test scores.
