Assessment Fundamentals: Performance Based
This workshop explains how to dissect performance-based assessments into component parts with explicit links to possible validity threats, apply validity concepts to better structure performance-based assessments and critically examine/evaluate performance-based assessment plans.
No events to show
This workshop is for health profession educators who are interested in understanding, structuring and critically examining performance-based assessment of clinical competence. No previous experience in studying assessment is required, but some experience with either participating in or planning performance-based assessments will assist in examining issues and applying concepts.
Health profession education programs often include some form of performance-based assessment using observers in simulation and/or workplace settings to support learning, progression, and high stakes decisions. Because these types of assessments require observers to interpret performance, apply assessment tools, and form judgements, educators need to be aware of ‘validity threats’ that might undermine their assessment goals.
By the end of the workshop participants will be able to: (a) dissect performance-based assessments into component parts with explicit links to possible validity threats, (b) apply validity concepts to better structure performance-based assessments; (c) critically examine and evaluate their own performance-based assessment plans.

11OctProject ECHO (Extension of Community Health Outcomes) is an evidence-based hub-and-spoke model for continuing professional development and capacity building. This presentation will summarize our journey in launching and expanding the ECHO Ontario Mental Health Program including how research has guided its education program design, implementation and creation of virtual communities of practice to better support healthcare providers in remote and underserved areas.
12OctThis workshop introduces participants to six paradigms of education relevant and prevalent in HPE. Participants are provided with an overview of each paradigm, how they are related to common education practices in HPE and how awareness of paradigmatic details and differences support aligned teaching/assessment approaches.
19OctThis workshop provides participants with the opportunity to reflect on both providing feedback from the teacher’s perspective and receiving feedback from the learner’s perspective. We will compare and contrast different “conversational choices” available to educators as part of their learning conversations.
