New study supports use of SJT and EPM


A new independent study has found positive early evidence to support the use of the Situational Judgement Test and Educational Performance Measure as tools of selection to Foundation Year 1. 

The Medical Schools Council's assessment arm, MSC Assessment, works with the UK Foundation Programme Office to deliver the Situational Judgement Test.

From the UKFPO press release:

A recent independent validation study undertaken by the Work Psychology Group for Health Education England and the UKFPO has found positive early evidence to support the continued use of the current Foundation Programme selection tools, Educational Performance Measure and the Situational Judgement Test. 

The findings of the report, Validation of the F1 Selection Tools suggest that these two assessments are complementary in predicting F1 performance and supports the use of both measures in the application process.

The full press release and study can be found on the UK Foundation Programme Office website.
