Haigh, CA 2003, 'An evaluation of a judgmental model of assessment for assessing clinical skills in MSc students' , Nurse Education in Practice, 3 (1) , pp. 43-48.Full text not available from this repository.
As the focus within clinical practice moves toward higher and specialist levels of practice, the difficulty of assessing such higher level skills become more of an issue for nurse educators. The paper outlines the application of the Judgmental Module of Assessment outlined by Hager and Butler (1996) to two multidisciplinary cohorts of students undertaking an MSc in pain management. It is contended that the epistemological assumptions inherent within this versatile model make it highly appropriate for the assessment of practical skills at Master degree level. The difficulties faced by the students in assimilating this model of assessment are outlined and the overall usefulness of this assessment approach is reflected upon. The place and timing of such an assessment technique is considered and focus of the model is evaluated within the framework of higher levels of practice across different health disciplines.
