New in 2020:
The Weikart Center will offer a live virtual interactive EART option, which will consist of 6 hours* of live virtual interactive learning combined with ~8 hours of self-paced work. Together these experiences recreate the experience of the in-person workshop. The virtual interactive portion takes place via Zoom and is led by a Weikart Center trainer.
The external assessor endorsement will now last two years
, with an additional reliability test required only on the third year, and every other year beyond that (vs the annual reliability test that is currently required).
For assessors who received an endorsement in the 2019-2020 year, this year will count as "year two" and they will go through the continuing education process.
External Assessor Distance Reliability Training is intended for anyone being endorsed in an additional tool-only. For example, if you are recently in endorsed in the School-Age tool via a live (or live virtual) training and want an additional endorsement in the Youth tool (or vice versa). This option is not available for endorsement in the SEL PQA.
