This unit will be assessed through four different activities.
The assessment must be robust to allow judgements regarding achievement of learning outcomes.
The assessment criteria are mapped against the appropriate learning outcome.
Three assessment processes are used to validate the learning outcomes.
A. Peer to Peer Clinical Skills Assessment
Candidates will complete a peer reviewed saw bone run through of a navigated knee to demonstrate the practical skills required to undertake a computer assisted knee and an understanding of the skills involved
B. Multiple Choice Question Paper
Candidates will complete a multiple choice questionnaire covering all aspects of the taught unit and the relevant pre-course reading
C. Case Studies
Candidates will be expected to submit 3 knee arthroplasty case studies to demonstrated their knowledge and understanding of knee arthroplasty principles and their application.
D. Short Answer Written Paper
Candidates will be expected to complete an online written paper comprising of short answer questions covering all aspects of the learned material from the course.
The assessment process has been designed to ensure that each assessment criterion covers the full range of issues taught on the programme in such a way that candidates are required to demonstrate their knowledge of the issues, interpret that knowledge in a reflective practice exercises and apply the knowledge in a clinical situation.
Candidates failing to meet the requirements from the 4 formal assessments, will be asked to sit for a further oral examination and may be asked to resit elements of the assessment is appropriate.
