Competency-Based Clinical Evaluation Tools. 1987 SBCCE Grant Project.
Highline Community Coll., Midway, WA.
This document contains clinical evaluation tools that reflect the increasing degrees of independence and competence expected as students move through the sequential clinical courses of an associate degree nursing program. Two tools are provided for each of the seven clinical courses. Tool 1, Program/Course Objectives and Evaluation Criteria, includes five sections, each headed by a major program objective. Within each section are 3-5 clinical objectives, each defined by behavioral criteria. Although the objectives remain the same throughout the program, the criteria are specific for each sequential clinical course. Formative (weekly) and summative (final) evaluations are based on a scale that rates the student performance according to the quality/number of criteria achieved by the student. Tool 2, Evaluation of Psychomotor Skill Performance, itemizes the technical skills and the degree of competence required for each skill during each quarter of the program. Evaluation is ongoing and based on a scale that rates the quality/expediency of skill performance and the degree of supervision required by the student to complete the skill safely and accurately. Two additional documents are provided to support this evaluation process. The Self-Appraisal Paper, leveled for each sequential clinical course, focuses on critique of interpersonal interactions and evaluation of various aspects of professional development. The Learning/Probationary Contract Format provides a uniform process for guiding students who do not satisfactorily meet the evaluation criteria. (YLB)
