Coming to you from ICRE 2017, this is the second recording from KeyLIME Live where we were joined by co-hosts Glenn Regehr and Karen Hauer. Part 2 finds the co-hosts discussing an observational study where the authors assert that the #meded literature lacks studies that provide validity evidence for workplace-based assessments (WBAs).
As any frequent listener knows, the hosts have often discussed the importance of the contemporary shift away from high-stakes, end-of-training exams, to programmatic assessment, an approaching involving a system that emphasizes WBAs sampled in authentic environments, often with direct observation, and collated in meaningful ways for decision-making. Will this paper change their point of view? Listen to find out!
