Trusting Judgements - a new approach to progression without a numeric scale

Activity: Disseminating Research Workshop, Seminar or Course




The medical profession uses a competency-based model based on workplace assessments from a range of supervisors to decide whether a trainee is fit to progress to the next level of training or to be certified as fit for entry to the specialist or generalist register. Is it time to move away from a numeric approach and consider whether a qualitative approach based on the judgement of experienced professionals would offer a more sound alternative? This workshop, facilitated by three experienced educators, will explore with the profession how a framework of professional judgements and reflection might replace the current assessment frameworks.
