Progressive assessment and workplace-based assessment program guide
The RACGP WBA program
The WBA program enables assessment of registrar performance throughout training and the provision of feedback to guide future learning activities. A key aspect of the assessment for learning that underpins the WBA program is that the registrar needs to develop learning goals and learning activities based on the feedback provided and demonstrate that the feedback has been effectively incorporated in their performance during subsequent assessments.
The objectives of the RACGP WBA program are to:
Embedding assessment within the workplace provides data that can be used for both educational purposes and to support high-stakes decisions. To date, WBA has been used predominantly in a formative manner to facilitate and direct learning through self-reflection and feedback. It has also been used to identify a registrar’s learning and supervision needs and to determine the amount of support required.
WBAs will continue to be used primarily as assessment for learning but will now also provide valuable information to support decisions about progression through training. Data from WBAs can be used to assess if a registrar has met the appropriate clinical competencies and skills to progress to the next stage of training, to be considered eligible to sit the written Fellowship exams, and ultimately to be deemed as safe to practice independently in comprehensive general practice.
