Dr. Jordan Wright is back to talk about yet another of his specialties: assessment supervision. We talk through Jordan’s model of assessment-based assessment supervision, touching on each part of the assessment process and how supervisors can continually assess their supervisees’ skill level along the way. This episode is chock full of useful nuggets, including…
- Why Jordan initially assumes that everyone is terrible at assessment
- How to beat procrastination as it relates to report-writing
- The key touchpoints of assessment supervision
- Balancing “sage on the stage” with “guide on the side” styles
