practice placement assessment
Practice placement assessment
  • Practitioner Assessment:
  • Pass Fail – pass required to be eligible to attempt presentation / viva voce
  • Competencies on placement form move towards HCPC Standards of Proficiency over 3 years
    • Supported by a negotiated learning contract for that setting
  • Students required to complete and present a case study as formative Ax whilst on placement
  • Academic staff provide pre & mid placement training & mid placement quality monitoring visit – additional support may be given to support therapists & a failing student
  • Presentation / viva voce:
  • Presentation time & questioning increase from year 1 to year 3 – audio record & collect materials from students for externals
  • Presentations / vivas are jointly assessed by an OT academic and an OT practitioner
  • Assessors will mark independently then negotiate mark awarded according to criteria designed to reflect learning outcomes and university grading levels for each stage of study
  • A moderator will visit each assessment panel to ensure inter-rater reliability
  • All fails & a range further moderated by module lead before sending to external examiner
