    Assessment 
    Engage in initial, formative, benchmark, and summative assessments demonstrating a level of competence in the CPSELs meriting possession of a Clear Administrative Services Credential. As part of the summative assessment, candidates provide a presentation demonstrating how they have demonstrated competency in the CPSELs.
