Getting Started with the Self-Rating Scale

It is important that you start by self-rating your level of competency within each of the stroke core competency areas. This will help you to identify your specific educational needs.

You can start by printing off the self-rating scale here.

Look at each of the 16 competencies individually. Read through the learning objectives for each considering each competency as a whole. In the start date column, enter the number that most closely reflects your knowledge/ skill / experience with respect to each of the 16 competencies. This should result in 16 ratings, one for each competency. Highlight the ones with the lowest scores and start with these. It is suggested that within a one year period, you aim to accomplish a “7” (competency achieved) rating for all 16 competencies.
