Competency Exploration for
Development And Readiness (CEDAR)
CEDAR is a web-based competency assessment tool for Federal government personnel. It provides a flexible interface that uses employee self-assessment and supervisor proficiency ratings to guide training and development needs.
How It Works
First-time use of the tool will typically include the following steps:
Supervisor registers for a new account
Supervisor creates a new position with associated competencies
Supervisor identifies targeted proficiency levels and the employee’s proficiency
Employee receives an email notification and completes his/her profile to create an account
Employee identifies additional desired competencies for personal career growth (optional)
Employee conducts a self-assessment on the position and career growth competencies
CEDAR calculates the results and makes them available for the supervisor and employee to view
Supervisor & Employee print the results to facilitate a conversation on development (recommended)
