THE INDIVIDUAL TRAINING NEEDS ASSESSMENT (ITNA) & DEVELOPMENT PLAN IN CAPS LMS
Steps for the Assessee’s Supervisor
There are TWO distinct processes all PCSA caseworkers and PCSA supervisors are required to complete in CAPS LMS to comply with OAC Rule: 1) Completion of their assigned ITNA in conjunction with their supervisor, and 2) Creation of an individual development plan (IDP) with their supervisor’s input and approval. Instructions to complete both are included in this guide.
Individual Training Needs Assessments (ITNAs) – known as competency assessment tasks in CAPS LMS– are assigned every two years by ODJFS in CAPS LMS to your direct reports and to you, as their supervisor. Your direct report completes the assessment from their perspective, and you add your supervisory perspective on their learning needs. Once both perspectives are collected, together you review and discuss the results and decide which recommended development actions (instructor-led and self-directed courses, videos, materials, coaching) your worker will add to their corresponding development plan. While plans are created by the worker in CAPS LMS, they still require your supervisory approval. These plans guide the worker’s learning priorities and are automatically updated as they complete learning interventions indicated in the plan.
