Test are scary. Online tests are scary too. Are you an aspiring coach looking to apply for your International Coaching Federation (ICF) credential and thinking about taking their Coaching Knowledge Assessment (CKA) soon?
Fear no more. Join Cherie Silas, MCC, CEC – the only ICF Master Certified Coach who is also a Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise and Team Coach in exploring what CKA is all about and boosting your confidence that yes, you got it.
What Is CKA?
The Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA) is a tool that can be used to measure coaches’ understanding of the knowledge and skills important in the practice of coaching. The CKA tests coaches on their understanding of the body of knowledge that includes the ICF definition of coaching, Core Competencies and Code of Ethics.
Once an applicant’s credential application is reviewed, ICF staff will contact the applicant via email with a status update containing the next step in the review process. The steps for a credential application review vary depending on the path in which the applicant applies for the credential.
You will receive an email invitation to complete the CKA once your application review is complete. The email will contain further instructions on completing the CKA.
The Coach Knowledge Assessment content covers five broad domains: setting the foundation, co-creating the relationship, communicating effectively, facilitating learning and results, and coaching foundations and knowledge base. All questions are based on the ICF definition of coaching, Core Competencies and Code of Ethics. Questions’ difficulty levels vary, with some intended to assess awareness of a concept or skill while others may present a scenario that requires deeper understanding.
The current version of the CKA contains 155 multiple-choice test items. Each test item contains a short statement or question with four possible responses. For each question there is only one response that ICF has established as being correct.
