Video Analysis of Athletic Training Student Performance: Changing Educational Competency into Clinical Proficiency
Kawaguchi, Jeffrey K.
Athletic Training Education Journal, v4 n4 p157-161 Oct-Dec 2009
Context: Assessing clinical proficiency and documenting learning over time is quite challenging. Educators must look for unique ways to effectively examine students' performance and archive evidence of their academic progress. Objective: To discuss the use of video analysis to bridge the gap from educational competency to clinical proficiency, and describe its use in the assessment of clinical proficiency of the athletic training student. Background: A consistent challenge in curricular development for any athletic training education program (ATEP) is transforming formal classroom and psychomotor skill learning to the appropriate clinical proficiencies required by the standards for accreditation. Thus, we developed a method to address this challenge that incorporates the use of digital video technology. Description: We describe the use of video in the form of a digital video disc (DVD) as the means to evaluate and assess the student's achievement of specific clinical proficiencies. Additionally, we give specific examples of the aspects of video analysis that we have addressed in actual encounters. We present this method as a means to perpetuate the concept of "learning over time." Clinical Advantage(s): The use of video to analyze student performance during a clinical injury evaluation provides the means of (1) evaluating an athletic training student's clinical proficiency, (2) allowing student input into their psychomotor performance, and (3) developing archival data of student performance for re-evaluation and documentation of learning over time. Conclusion(s): The use of video analysis represents an effective pedagogical method to educate athletic training students. (Contains 2 tables.)
