The use of Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) has become a common practice for clinical skills assessment. Most educational institutions use this assessment modality to measure the clinical competency of learners in specific stations using checklists and global rating scales. To maintain an acceptable degree of validity and reliability, it is necessary to pay special care to the design and use of these assessment instruments.

This Online Masterclass aims to discuss and apply the basic principles of assessment design to the development of effective checklists and global rating scales to measure examinee performance in OSCEs and avoid common errors.
