Prof. Name


Part One – Assessment Description and Rationale

Description of the Assessment

This assessment aims to evaluate the learner’s comprehension and application of ethical principles specifically within the context of pediatric nursing. It encompasses a multifaceted approach, including a written examination, a real-time simulation, and a reflective essay. Each component targets different learning domains to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of both theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

Domains and Assessment Tools

The Cognitive Domain assesses the learner’s understanding and application of foundational ethical principles in pediatric nursing through a written examination consisting of multiple-choice questions, true/false determinants, and scenario-based short-answer questions (Mileski et al., 2022).

In the Psychomotor Domain, learners demonstrate their ability to navigate and resolve ethical dilemmas in a pediatric clinical setting through a simulated clinical scenario (Endres et al., 2021).

The Affective Domain focuses on introspection, requiring learners to reflect on the emotional and moral aspects of their decisions in pediatric care through a reflective essay (Morrill & Westrick, 2022).

Validity and Reliability of the Assessment

To ensure validity and reliability, post-assessment surveys will be conducted among faculty and students to gather feedback. Analysis of grades and student progression will provide insights into the assessment’s effectiveness. Additionally, anecdotal comments will be collected to enrich the feedback process and improve future assessments.

Communication of Grading Expectations

Transparency is maintained through a comprehensive grading rubric provided to students at the beginning of the course. This includes criteria and weightage for each assessment component. Regular feedback sessions and clear communication from faculty further support students in understanding expectations and standards.
