Scoring Fire Simulation Training Assessments

We strongly suggest that you develop at least a simple assessment/evaluation process for all your training, not simply ‘where it counts’ such as for promotional exams. We recommend developing a consistent and simple strategy for scoring and determining an acceptable score for passing a student. For example, 100% for Essential actions, 85% for Critical actions, and 75% for Non-critical actions.  One simple but useful scoring strategy is to assign a point score of 0, 1, or 2 for each action. The idea of scoring a candidate along the three action categories is so that a missed important action cannot be compensated for by a strong performance in the third category (non-essential nor critical). See Appendix A. Example Scoring Sheets for example scoring sheets you can adapt.
