The use of video as an assessment tool: The perceptions of staff and students in a School of Nursing
Das, A. (2010). The use of video as an assessment tool: The perceptions of staff and students in a School of Nursing. 19th Annual Teaching and Learning Forum.
The traditional method of assessing skills in the School of Nursing, University of Notre Dame, Australia (UNDA) is by observing and recording student performance. This process is dependent on face to face observation and feedback by academic and sessional staff within the School of Nursing. Assessment of skills through observation under examination conditions is very stressful for both student and examiners and does not always engage or reflect the student's true ability. This method of assessment also puts a strain on human and financial resources in an education based organisation. It is an ongoing challenge to develop assessments that students concur with and are feasible and viable for the university.
