P02 Quick and Meaningful: An Innovative Resource for the Use of Clinical Expert Time Establishing OSCE Cutoff Scores

Magdalena Pasarica; Leslie Marchand

02/2/18 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM Austin Grand Ballroom J-K

Establishing OSCE cutoff scores using the modified Angoff method is traditionally done using pen and paper and lasts for at least 4 hours for a three-station OSCE. As time is precious for all faculty, we created an innovative, meaningful, and efficient way of running the meeting required for establishing cutoff scores for OSCE. We developed a process that lasted 1.5 hours with four clinical raters for a three-station OSCE. More than this, the process was characterized as efficient and meaningful by the other raters, who also expressed interest in using this process for their meetings where the cutoff scores for OSCEs are established.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. On completion of this session, learners would be able to implement the modified Angoff method for establishing OSCE cut-off scores.
  2. On completion of this session, learners would be able to implement an efficient process for establishing OSCE cut-off scores.
  3. On completion of this session, learners would be able to defend the reasons for using standardize setting for establishing OSCE cut-off scores.
