New competency and workplace-based assessment tools to help you prepare for the new academic year

This fall Anesthesiology and Otolaryngology programs across Canada will start transitioning to Competency by Design (CBD) – a new competency based approach for measuring and tracking resident performance. The CBD transition means changes in assessment workflows to frequent, formative assessments. The CBD transition also means changes to performance review by linking assessment data to entrustable professional activities (EPAs), competencies, and milestones.

We are very close to releasing our new evaluation workflow tools geared toward programs using one45 for formative and work-place based assessments.… Read More

(Updated) It’s easier than ever to initiate “self-sends” in one45

Programs using DOPS, Mini-CEX, Field Notes, Daily Cards or other workplace-based assessments in their practice are going to love this update. We’ve made a number of changes to our “self-send” tools that make it easier to launch new assessments, and select the correct person to evaluate.

Your learners and faculty can initiate a new assessment directly from their To Do page. When you are setting up an assessment, one45 guides you through choosing the relevant rotation or clerkship, and will suggest the person you’re most likely to assess or be assessed by.Read More

Best practices for incorporating competency-based assessment with one45

With the new year now well underway for most of us, I am using this opportunity to start a fresh discussion about how programs like yours are using one45 for competency-based assessment. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to administrators and directors of a number of programs over the last few months and you’ve shared some of the ways that you are using one45 for competency-based assessment. I’ve also fielded a number of questions asking me about what other programs are doing, so I wanted to share what I’ve learned, and I encourage you to share some of your own experiences.… Read More
