Self and Group Assessment

The purposes of the Core Competency Curriculum Guidelines are self-assessment and self-improvement. They are not intended, nor are they appropriate, to test or to grade practicing or aspiring court managers. Use of the Core Competency Curriculum Guidelines to evaluate the performance of a practicing court manager would not be appropriate for a host of technical and practical problems and is generally understood to be unacceptable to the courts’ community and the National Association for Court Management (NACM). Further, while all the ten Core Competencies, and related Curriculum Guidelines and KSAs are crucial, NACM does not assume that any single court manager has or could master every Core Competency, much less every single Curriculum Guideline area and KSA.

The ten Core Competencies listed below link to self assessment exercises both for individuals and for courts and professional organizations. These exercises are intended to be used by courts and professional organizations to set priorities and build relevant educational curricula and by individuals for self-improvement.  Each Core Competency below includes self assessment ranking forms for: Curriculum Guidelines and Knowledge, Skills and Abilities in Adobe (PDF) and MSWord (DOC) formats.
