Work place based assessment

Linking evidence in ePortfolio
• ePortfolio evidence should be linked to
competencies to show learning and
engagement with the curriculum
• One piece of evidence is sufficient if it
demonstrates a competency has been
properly explored
• ePortfolio linkages of SLEs should be limited to
8 for ACAT and 2 for mini-CEX and CbD
Linking evidence in ePortfolio (2)
• You should self-assess and assign indicative
ratings from the drop-down box for each
competency you have explored
• Ten of the common competencies will not
require linked evidence in the ePortfolio
unless concerns are raised
Sampling of competencies
• Your supervisor should regularly sample and
discuss your linked evidence, ratings and
statements in the ePortfolio
• It is not necessary to examine all evidence and
competencies to determine progress
• We recommend 10-12 competencies are
sampled per training year. More will be
required if evidence is considered inadequate
Educational supervisor report
• The educational supervisor’s report is pivotal
to the ARCP process and includes a summary
of multiple consultant reports (MCRs) and
multi-source feedback (MSF)
• Your supervisor will report on your
engagement with the curriculum determined
by sampling of evidence and competencies
