Developing On-Water Standards and Rubrics working drafts: A 4-Version Process
Developing high-quality working drafts of On-Water Skills-based Standards is no small task. It involves a 4-version process in which Versions 1 and 2 result in consensus on paper as to the content of the Standards. Versions 3 and 4 result from field-testing what is on paper at different venues around the country (with real people in real boats) to help ensure that what is on paper will actually work in the field. This document provides more detail about the 4-version process used to develop the working drafts.
