Performance Evaluation and Career Development Training
Fields has developed this training for many public safety departments. The program includes every aspect of performance evaluation from benchmarking - to rater training - to performance management implementation for all ranks. Our extensive program includes training in second-line review, improving performance of underperformers, and annual goal setting. This program includes a manual that department leaders and managers can use as a reference tool to keep their evaluations on track. We strongly encourage annual refresher training to ensure that your performance evaluation programs remain objective over time.
Executive, Subject Matter Expert, Assessor, and Candidate Training
As part of our testing programs for local, state, and federal public safety agencies, Fields provides training for all parties involved. For example, we train department executives on selection issues such as passing scores and banding strategies. We train subject matter experts (SMEs) on test item writing and reviewing, and behavioral benchmarking. We train test assessors on administration logistics, performance observation, performance assessment, and frame of reference for rating errors. And, of course, we train candidates on the strategies that would best prepare them for taking their exam.
