Assessment Process

About Assessment


The IYNAUS Assessment Committee is tasked with conducting assessments for our members and implementing the RIMYI guidelines. Successful assessments involve many aspects, including training of assessors, exam writing, and venue coordination. While the IYNAUS Assessment Committee administers the assessment, RIMYI provides the certificates.

The Assessment Weekend

About the Assessment Weekend

Assessments are organized and staffed entirely by volunteers. Assessors, the Zoom coordinator, students, and others behind the scenes have volunteered time and effort for the weekend assessment. This whole process could not happen without them.

It is important to remember that assessments operate on the honor system. After receiving any part of the assessment exam, especially the list ofasanasto be taught and the written exam, candidates should not consult anyone, including their mentor, colleagues, or other candidates.


An assessor-in-training may also be present during the assessment weekend. While assessors-in-training do score the candidates, their judgment carries no weight in decisions regarding candidates.

After the Assessment


Scores for the assessment will be given asPass,Provisional Pass, Retake, or没过。

Candidates must pass all portions of the assessment to pass their assessment. Upon successfully passing an assessment, the candidate will receive a signed certificate from RIMYI stating that the respective level requirements have been fulfilled.

Candidates who have not passed the written exam but have passed all other parts of the assessment will receive a provisional pass. Candidates who receive a provisional pass may retake the written exam by rewriting the exam portions that need improvement. This is usually done in the month following the assessment.

Candidates who do not score high enough to pass the teaching presentation must retake this portion of the assessment. A retake weekend will be offered at the end of the assessment season. Candidates can sign up for the retake weekend without resubmitting a recommendation. If candidates do not sign up for the retake weekend in the same year as the initial assessment, they will need to reapply for assessment in the following year.

Candidates must pass both the inversions practice and the conducted performance in order to proceed with the teaching presentation. Candidates who fail to pass the inversions practice and conducted performance must reapply for assessment.
