About Qpercom & Mock-OCSE.com:

Qpercom spun-out from the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at the National University of Ireland, Galway in 2008. We are a global leader in assessment software, specifically time-constrained station-based assessments called OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations) and MMI (Multi-Mini-Interviews). We provide bespoke assessment solutions to universities including Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, Dundee University, St George’s University, University of Nicosia, Karolinska Institute and the National University of Singapore. Our award-winning OSCE/MMI assessment solution caters for clinical assessments allowing for psychometric analysis, Borderline Regression Analysis (pre and post assessment standard setting) including the SEM (Standard Error of Measurement) for improved Pass/Fail decision-making and support for remote video assessments. Developed by medical educators, for medical educators, this web application allows Schools of Medicine and Healthcare Sciences to plan and perform OSCEs and MMIs, as well as conduct detailed instant analysis on results while the assessment is ongoing. During the Pandemic we embedded video in our assessment platform allowing candidates, actors and assessors to meet through Mock-OSCE.com. Candidates worldwide will be offered access to, initially, 7 time-restricted station-based clinical scenarios focusing on communication skills for training and assessment purposes. The Calgary-Cambridge guide to clinical consultations is a proven method of medical interviewing and it will be used as a base to the Mock-OSCE.com assessment templates. Candidates will be provided with constructive feedback after completing their stations, summarised in a personalised PDF report, including scenario objectives, scoresheet scores, global rating outcomes and written assessor comments. Actors and assessors will be guided through fair and honest educational decision-making and feedback procedures. Automated psychometric analysis (Qpercom Analyse) is available to further improve training & assessment procedures on an iterative basis.
