The Development of Film Material and Testing Procedures to Assess Students' Interpersonal Skills.
Pearson, Margot; And Others
This paper reports the development of a testing procedure using film stimulus materials to assess the interpersonal skills of first-year medical students at the University for New South Wales enrolled in the Introductory Clinical Studies (ICS) course, which is designed to encourage students to be aware of the complexities of human relationships and improve their own skills. Topics covered include the use of film and video material, vignette and material development, pilot testing, assessment procedures, a program designed to evaluate the previous year's materials and procedures, and the test finally developed to measure students' interpersonal skills. Appendices include the description of a possible approach to assessing ICS by videotape, and three student response sheets for film and videotape testing. (CMV)
