The IDP Process
The CATIE Center at St. Catherine University, in partnership with Interpreting Consolidated, is creating an Individual Development Plan (IDP) using the framework for assessment developed by Dr. Marty Taylor. The IDP includes three steps:
- Focused goals
- Challenging activities
For assessment, we have developed an online form that allows you to use the Major Features from Marty Taylor to assess your work.
If you own a copy of Interpretation Skills: English to ASL or Interpretation Skills: ASL to English, you can get a code to access a more in-depth version of the form that is designed to be used with the book.

Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals
The CATIE Center is developing a spreadsheet to use the results from the assessment form to help identify S.M.A.R.T. goals.
Open Access S.M.A.R.T. Goal Generator
Designed as a Google Sheet, you can also download it as a spreadsheet to use in Excel, Numbers or other spreadsheet program.
Customized S.M.A.R.T. Goal Generator
This S.M.A.R.T. Goal generator incorporating assessment framework from Taylor (2017, 2002) is accessible through the online assessment form which allows for controlling access to people who have purchased Taylor’s books as required by our agreement with Interpreting Consolidated, the publisher for these books.
The CATIE Center has developed a Digital Learning Repository that contains a growing number of activities that can be used to address different skill areas. Activities are searchable so that you can find something that addresses the skill you are working on, is at the appropriate level of challenge, and fits within your time frame.
If you use the assessment form, your results will suggest specific activities for you.
