The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) technical level two component for the sport of judo. The review of the literature provided background of the NCCP, the sport of judo and the evaluation methodologies that were considered and/or used in the evaluation. A modified version of Stake's (1995) responsive evaluation model was used as a guide in the project. The model was used because of its flexibility, use of audience concerns, as well as its standards development. Quantitative and qualitative data were gathered from all provinces and territories in Canada over a period of a year and a half. The stakeholders were identified and divided into two groups, primary (expert) and secondary (level two) coaches. The evaluation itself was separated into two phases. In phase one the primary stakeholders set the standards. In phase two the primary and secondary stakeholders evaluated the existing course by applying the standards from phase one. The consensus among all stakeholders was that the course was meeting the standards; however, they did offer recommendations for improvement of the National Coaching Certification Program.
