Abstract

Practical skills assessment is prevalent in many degree programmes, particularly
those associated with healthcare education. The COVID-19 pandemic severely
disrupted assessment due to social distancing restrictions, maximum room
occupancy and movement around spaces rules. In addition, within healthcare,
simulated patients were not able to be used in assessments. In this study, using a
sociomaterial perspective, we aimed to explore the factors pertaining to a disrupted
undergraduate medicine high-stakes Objective Structured Clinical Examination
(OSCE). Study findings elicited important themes around building a resilient
assessment system. These findings will enable educators and assessment
coordinators to consider how to develop resilient assessment processes going
forward.
