The Accomplishment Record is a structured method for collecting information about applicants' past achievements. It is particularly useful for selection and promotion in leadership and professional positions. Applicants submit written descriptions of their accomplishments for a given set of competencies (generally between four and eight). Accomplishments are evaluated by a panel of trained raters against competency-based benchmarks developed for the targeted occupation. An Accomplishment Record can be developed for any occupation within two to four weeks. Scoring benchmarks for a particular occupation are developed as part of the rating process. The length of the rating process, generally between two and six weeks, is determined by the number of applicants and the number of competencies assessed. The Accomplishment Record can be completed online along with other assessments and/or application materials.
