Focused Feedback on Preaching Progress

Use the scale below to evaluate the student's competency in each area or amount of progress for skill development. If not applicable, skip the line.
  1. Very Poor, Far Below Requirements, or Minimal Development
  2. Poor, Below Requirements, or Partial Development
  3. Average, Meets Requirements, or Typical/Usual Development
  4. Good, Above Average Requirements, Substantial Development
  5. Excellent, Far Above Requirements, or Exceptional Development (beyond normal expectations for a student).
This process for progress is similar to the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition moving from novice to advanced beginner to competent to proficient to expert, with expertise more about excellence and maturity than mastery in ministry.
