Assessment of Clinical Reasoning:  A Script Concordance Test Designed for Pre-Clinical Medical Students

Mary Johnson, Ph.D.

Associate dean for Academic Affairs

Part of a clinician’s competence is the capacity to deal with the complex and ambiguous nature of patient care. The Script Concordance Test (SCT) is a method for evaluating data interpretation, one of the measurable dimensions of problem-solving skill.

This presentation will allow participants to:

  1. Discover the SCT, an innovative competency-based assessment.
  2. Apply the application of this tool for the evaluation of problem- solving competency in medical learners.
  3. Appreciate the SCT as a validated assessment for differentiating among medical learners from student to resident physician to expert clinician.
