How to run a successful OSCE with peer assessors Glasgow Veterinary School administers multiple formative and summative OSCEs each year, costly in both time, and staff involvement. Clinical staff are reluctant to take time away from the hospitals to assess mock exams, so we recruit senior students to peer assess junior undergraduates during their formative OSCEs. In a recent internal study, >97% of Glasgow students highly rated the PAs’ ability to provide constructive feedback, believed they had been given helpful advice on improving future performance, and that they had been fairly assessed. Peer assessors believed that peer assessing would benefit them in their own OSCEs, because of their inside knowledge of the OSCE scenarios, and that they would feel more confident, and reported an increased understanding of the assessment process. Peer assessment of formative OSCEs has now been used successfully at Glasgow for several years. The workshop would provide useful advice on the following: How to choose your peer assessors How to train your peer assessors How to ensure peer assessment is accepted by your students How to run an OSCE entirely with peer assessors During the workshop we would plan to discuss the following questions:- Why should we use peer assessors? Who should they be? How do we train peer assessors? What do we include in the training? Is it acceptable to use peer assessors in summative exams? What are the Pros and Cons of peer assessment? What are the benefits of peer assessment for staff, students and peer assessors?
