Kathy Boursicot has run standard setting workshops at Barts and the London School of Medicine for 6 years for summative (Final MBBS) and formative assessments. She has pioneered the introduction of standard setting, for both written and performance-based examinations, in all years of the medical school. She has conducted research comparing the effects of different standard setting methods on the outcomes of examinations, as well as analysing the effects of using the same standard setting method in different medical schools.
As Associate Dean for Assessment Clinical School in Cambridge, Kathy has introduced a comprehensive new assessment system, including the use of criterion-referenced standard setting methods for all levels of testing.
As a member of the PLAB OSCE Panel for 6 years and the PLAB Review group in the last year, she has participated in the development of criterion referenced standard setting methods both the Part 1 and Part of the PLAB.
Trudie Roberts has introduced the use of criterion-referenced standard setting methods for summative assessment in all years at Leeds University Medical School. As part of this strategy, she has conducted several standard setting workshops for the academic staff at Leeds over the past 3 years. She has been a member of the Royal College of Physicians? standard setting group for the MRCP for the last 3 years, developing criterion referenced standard setting methods for the Part 1 MRCP. She has collaborated with Kathy on an LTSN-01 funded research project investigating the use of the Angoff method across five medical schools, completed in 2003.
Both facilitators have jointly run workshops for the medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine subject centre (formerly LTSN-01) previously, in 2003 (OSCEs for assessment of clinical competence) and 2004 (examiner training for OSCEs); these have been highly evaluated by the participants.
This workshop is for people new to standard setting, who want an introduction to the principles underlying the different contemporary best practice methods.
