The Assessment Grid is a document that the Review Board uses to identify questions for each applicant interview and to guide decision making regarding advancement.
Review Board members review each application independently and complete the assessment grid reviewing each component of the application, which includes the portfolio; clinical narrative; and clinical case presentation/case report. Review Board members who serve on the Interview Team also complete an Assessment Grid for the chart review.
In completing the Assessment Grid, all Review Board members review each component of the application and review the criteria specified in each theme and sub-theme of the Practice Model Continuum to determine whether the applicant: meets the criteria specified; does not meet the criteria specified; or whether no evidence exists to make a determination on whether the applicant does or does not meet the criteria specified in the Practice Model Continuum.
All Review Board members complete an Assessment Grid for each applicant and e-mail the grid to the Sr. Administrative Secretary who supports the Review Board. The Sr. Administrative Secretary compiles the Assessment Grids and creates a summary grid. The Review Board uses this summary grid to review all of the responses and determine areas of focus for the interview. Interview questions are developed for areas in which the Review Board finds evidence that the applicant does not meet the criteria specified in the Practice Model Continuum or areas in which no evidence exists to make a determination on whether the applicant does or does not meet the criteria specified in the Practice Model Continuum. The interview process gives the applicant the opportunity to provide additional information to the Review Board to support their application for advancement.
