This workshop will teach participants 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 and evaluate their own performance-based assessment plans.

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.
