Comprehensive Learner Record—Enabling Embedded Assessment of Competency-Focused Outcomes at University of Rochester School of Nursing
AALHE 11th Annual Conference
June 9, 2021 @ 5:00 PM – 5:45 PM EDT
Providing safe, effective, high-quality nursing care requires repetitive practice of competencies that support effective assessment, problem solving, and clinical decision-making. Professional organizations are calling for a radical transformation in teaching and learning for nurses, to emphasize meaningful practice of competencies. Yet, this radical shift requires an equally profound pivot in the way we assess learning in the health professions. Simply put, course grades listed on a transcript do not provide adequate information to determine whether a learner is ready for practice.
Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) provides a holistic approach to assessment that tracks the achievement of competencies as students progress through a curriculum, identifying areas of strength and gaps in knowledge. In this session, we describe how University of Rochester’s School of Nursing developed CLR while shifting to a competency-based curriculum. We share our first findings through data collected on course learning outcomes in capstone courses within UofR nursing programs.
It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:
1. Explain the characteristics of a comprehensive learner record
2. Identify how comprehensive learner record can be used as a holistic tool assessing competencies
3. Describe the process of developing a comprehensive learner record to foster an environment for students to co-produce their own learning
