SimAssess Medical Simulation Performance Evaluation Tool From KbPort
I just learned of KBPort‘s SimAssess which was created to bridge the gap between clinical simulation and visual debriefing. SimAssess provides educators with the means to assess each simulation experience quantitatively. The data-driven debriefing capability of SimAsses helps educators identify strengths and weaknesses individually, across an entire class, and across multiple classes. This rubric-based assessment toolkit also increases efficiency, reducing the time it takes to evaluate by allowing educators to refer to a substantive description eliminating the need for writing long, descriptive comments. SimAssess eliminates uncertainty in grading and offers evaluative consistency across time, class groups and multiple graders. Learners benefit from exposure to performance expectations and standards, receipt of consistent feedback to improve performance and self-directed recognition of performance strengths and weaknesses.
The cloud-based, easy-to-use, flexible, rubric-based format of SimAssess offers educators and training personnel, the most efficient, powerful technology, that can be customized to fit any teaching style and fully leveraged to maximize learner potential.
- Assessment – Effective assessment with RUBRIC scoring guide for timely and meaningful feedback. Automated scoring and comprehensive data analytics on learner’s key performance factors.
- Easy Access – Assess on the fly with fast & easy R-CODE access for respondents. Eliminates scheduling to let educator / administrator focus on the complex task of running simulation.
- In The Cloud – Always accessible in the CLOUD and on any web-enabled device. Quick setup and easy to use. Includes latest firewall and encryption for privacy and data protection.
