- Observational: as observed, and noted, by a National Umpire Manager appointed coach
- Video-based: video evidence of your behaviours demonstrated in a match
- A combination of observation and video-based evidence

We call this continuous improvement.The resource material provided for you includes information on how to set goals, the role of self-assessment and how the continuous improvement cycle works. Each ICC umpire is expected to be able to plan every match and also plan his annual development. In particular, each umpire should be able to be honest enough to share with his coach:
Each plan developed by the umpire is not only a process, but also a tool – including stepping stones (how each goal will be achieved). You should regularly review your plan with your coach and change it, if necessary, through progress.
