Knowledge Dimensions Policy
Resilience-Building Leader Program certification exams assess knowledge in three dimensions:
- Factual knowledge is knowing what terms and ideas mean. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension by learning applicable definitions, meanings, and specific details.
- Conceptual knowledge is knowing the interrelationships among key terms and ideas. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension by learning how key terms and ideas function together to form a concept; by learning classifications, categories, and principles; and by learning theories, models, and structures.
- Procedural knowledge is knowing how to implement processes and carry out procedures. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension through your experience implementing subject-specific skills, techniques, and methods; through your experience determining when to use appropriate procedures; through your experience discovering or revealing something through detailed examination; and through your experience making judgments and decisions based on given criteria and standards.
An overall status of PASS is achieved by meeting expectations of competence in each domain applicable to the certification exam attempted.
- Meets expectations: Your performance meets the requirements for the competency domain.
- Does not meet expectations: Your performance does not meet the minimum requirements for the competency domain.
Not meeting expectations in a single competency domain of an RBLP, RBLP-C or RBLP-T certification exam requires a single domain 2nd attempt reexamination no sooner that 30 days from the date of original exam. Additional exam preparation is recommended prior to reexamination.
Not meeting expectations in two or more competency domains of an RBLP, RBLP-C or RBLP-T certification exam requires a 2nd attempt reexamination no sooner that 180 days from the date of original exam. Additional leadership experience and exam preparation is recommended prior to reexamination.
