ASSESSMENT PROGRAM

"Local and National Assignors strongly recommend every active RWISOA referee to request at least one (1) assessment every two (2) years."

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.
