abstract

  • The results are encouraging, with validity coefficients high enough to warrant optimism about the possibility of increasing them to the recommended .80 level, based on further studies to identify those measurable performance characteristics that most reflect the gold-standard ratings. The high interrater reliabilities indicate that faculty-physician ratings of performance on SP cases and examinations can or may be able to provide a reliable gold standard for validating and refining SP assessment.
