Our extension assessment is an additional layer of assessment that is comprised of questions that require short answers and are designed for the learner to: 

  • demonstrate an understanding of the subjects covered in the video
  • reflect on their practice
  • identify areas of their practice that could be improved upon and how those improvements will be implemented 

The extension assessment can be given to all staff and it’s particularly useful for advanced practice nurses such as RNs who are required to reflect on their professional practice. It’s also really useful for staff who are being performance managed due to an incident or event. After watching the video, they are able to demonstrate a deeper understanding of the issue and how they intend to modify their practice.  

The assessment can also be used in a group setting to facilitate discussion. The educator/facilitator can use the questions as a prompt for discussion. This can be done in small groups after handover, mandatory training or staff meetings.  

The extension assessment is available on all platforms as a pdf that can be printed out for staff to complete, or if you use our Bridge Authoring Tool and LMS each course has an extension assessment version available in the library. You can bundle the extension assessment with the main essential course to form a program,  or keep it separate and enrol your staff in both of them.
