WFTDA Skating Skills Assessment passing score

I've been looking over the officials' Skating Skills Assessment on the WFTDA site.  One thing I can't find is what constitutes a passing score for certification.  Anyone know or know where I can find it?

There is no pass/fail, it's an assessment not a test. The Skating Assessment just gives Certification information on an official's skating skills for Certification purposes.

So, what does it mean when the WFTDA site says that Level 1 Certification requires that you have "Passed Skating Skills Assessment"?

Not trying to be snarky, I just really don't know what I should be targeting!

StrawDogg, look at the file
http://wftda.com/officiating/wftda-referee-skating-skills-assessment.pdf

That explains the specific skating skills expected of a skating official for certification.
You will bout as you practice.

That's the file I'm looking at.  What it doesn't say is what's considered passing.  Is it a "satisfactory" in all areas, a minimum score, or something else?

You're misconstruing what's meant by "passing". As others have said, this is an assessment, not a test. If it helps to think of it in non-skating terms, think of it similar to a health inspection for a restaurant. It takes a lot of mistakes to get shut down by the health inspector, but there's no fixed set of responses necessary for passing it.

But if you insist on having a metric to shoot for, and thereby ensure that you pass your assessment: aim for fours in all categories. To my knowledge no one has ever gotten fours in every category and not passed their assessment.

Good luck!

Right, so where the Level Requirements say "Passed Skating Skills Assessment", it would be more accurate to say "Performed/Submitted Skating Skills Assessment". Very much analogous to the Eval reqs - to have a 'complete' cert application packet & even be considered, they each must be submitted, but it's the overall content that matters and will be looked at holistically.

I wouldn't recommend shooting for all fours. I wouldn't settle for anything less than sixes across the board. Your push to get better skating skills doesn't end after you take the assessment.

Wait, what?  You can't get all sixes. You can't get higher than a 4, and I would assume 3s are good enough since that's satisfactory.

[ 4=Exceptional, 3=Satisfactory, 2=Needs Work, 1=Unacceptable ]

I'm getting more confused by the minute...  :-\

My point is that you should be pushing yourself to do better than is possible to be graded. Meaning, exceptional still leaves room for improvement.

So how does this work for skaters with the new skating requirements then?  Since the skaters need to provide proof that their skaters have now passed the new skill requirements before they can bout (by June 15) what is the passing score for skaters?  Veteran ones should be getting 6's of course, but people just finishing their training what's the minimum.  It used to be 80% I believe.

The Certification assessment is completetly separate from the skater minimum skills requirement. One has nothing to do with the other.

No I get that they are separate, but as a ref it's my job to make sure that someone passes their minimum skills before I let them play a game.  What's that determination?

And I'm not in a WFTDA league so I can't ask the question about what the passing grade is so was hoping that someone else could tell me here, since I don't know another forum to ask it in.

It really isn't your job to do so.  It is a league's responsibility.

Team captains will certify that all testing was complete when submitting team charters and game sanctioning applications.

Captains certify that their league has done the proper testing when they apply for sanctioning.  We do not test skaters, nor do we need to be asking them to provide documentation.

Furthermore, if it is not a sanctioned game the MSR is not required (only strongly recommended).  And yes, I know that disagrees with rule 1.1, but the MSR update is pretty specific so I'll go with that until instructed otherwise.  I'd still recommend to leagues that their non-charter skaters do the assessments.
