more comprehensive assessment of skills, knowledge and behaviours. The assessment
process follows current assessment theory and is blueprinted to the curriculum.
The objectives of the WBA process are to:
- provide a basis for feedback of strengths and areas of clinical practice requiring
- develop skills of self-evaluation and reflective practice
- facilitate the development of strategies to improve performance
- monitor and record progress within and across clinical terms
- provide ongoing formative feedback to inform subsequent learning activities
Overall the assessment process aims to encourage reflection and the development of selfdirected
and self-managed lifelong learning.
