Welcome to the On-Water POWER Skills-Rubrics (Version I) Validation Survey

6% of survey complete.
Dear Recreational POWER boat Enthusiast,

You are invited to confirm the contents of a set to rubrics to assess Version 2 of entry-level, skill-based POWER boat standards agreed to by the POWER experts on the National On-Water Subject Matter Experts Team, empanelled using the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approach.

The results of this survey will be used to validate and update version I of rubrics for POWER boat operation standards. The outcome of this content validation process will be version II out of IV planned stages of rubrics to assess entry-level, skill-based POWER standards performance. In this survey you will be asked to:
  • Provide individual contact information;
  • Describe your POWER boat recreational boating experience;
  • Identify boater education and instructor certifications;
  • Take a brief rubric composition tutorial; and
  • Complete the survey.

We anticipate it should take approximately 25 – 30 minutes to complete this survey. Please begin by taking the tutorial: Tutorial - Read me first!. Please open the glossary of terms in a separate window prior to the survey by clicking Glossary. If you would like to learn more about the work of the National On-Water Standards team, review the following: On-Water Background & Project Summary.

Thank you for helping all of us make POWER boating a more safe and enjoyable pastime on our nation’s waterways!
