Interrater Reliability, Psychomotor Skill Assessment, Athletic Training, Assessment
Assessment in athletic training education is an evolutionary process that is determined by each individual Athletic Training Education Program. The autonomy authorized by national accreditation standards allows academic programs to determine the appropriate assessment practices that facilitate the meeting of student learning outcomes. Even with autonomy, formative and summative techniques are to be employed in both the didactic and clinical arenas of athletic training education programs. The major objective of athletic training education is to prepare students for entry-level practice in athletic training. The purpose of this study was to assess interrater reliability of athletic training faculty and approved clinical instructors in their rating of athletic training student performance on four psychomotor skills. A total of 115 individuals participated in this study. Thirty two faculty and 83 approved clinical instructors completed the online survey The results of this study indicate that the overall reliability was high for the entire population as well as the subgroups analyzed. Even though the overall reliability was high, three specific criteria out of a total of 29 criteria had lower reliability scores. These findings may indicate that there may be a high degree of agreement between academic faculty and approved clinical instructors in the rating of athletic training students in their performance of psychomotor skills.
