Our Assessment Program
The number one purpose of the RWISOA Assessment Program is to improve the skill level of our referees and to provide our assignors a pool of elite college officials.
All assessments are shared with all local assignors, conferences' officials coordinators, NISOA Region II Coordinator and the NISOA Director of Assessments.
The information and feedback collected from these assessments are used to improve our training and mentoring program.
