Leveraging Rubrics for End of Rotation OSCEs on Multiple Campuses

Recently, Robert Casanova, MD, Assistant Dean of Clinical Sciences, and Rachel Forbes, MBA, Managing Director of the Covenant Branch Campus, both from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas, discussed the use of ExamSoft rubrics to provide comprehensive and cohesive grading of OSCEs across several campus locations in their webinar, “Leveraging Rubrics for End of Rotation OSCEs on Multiple Campuses.”

The key takeaways from the presentation include:

  1. When implementing a new grading process, start simple and ease faculty into the process for a larger chance of faculty buy in.
  2. Be very careful to note the safety nets put in place by ExamSoft during the grading process.
  3. While implementation of security methods can be burdensome in the beginning, when applied consistently, they quickly become habit for all involved.

The presentation gives insight into the specifics of building a rubric as well as details on using categories to track longitudinal results and provide individual student feedback.

“The great thing about ExamSoft, is that student feedback is individualized.”
