The purpose of the study is to test the interrater reliability of a tool to evaluate student performance during clinical simulations, using a convenience sample of senior Baccalaureate nursing (BSN) students and clinical instructors. Permission was obtained from Creighton University to use the Creighton Simulation Evaluation Instrument (CSEI) and further test inter-rater reliability. Approval for the protocol was obtained from the University Institutional Review Board (IRB). Six different groups of three to five senior level nursing students (N=24) enrolled in a critical care course completed a scenario involving a patient with congestive heart failure. A total of 126 ratings by three clinical instructors were compared with the ratings by the course coordinator. The percent agreements between the each of the clinical instructors and the course coordinator were calculated for each category of the evaluation tool.
The CSEI tool was effective in evaluation of student performance during a simulation involving a patient with acute exacerbation of CHF. However, results were not consistent between evaluators. Thorough training of evaluators, greater precision in defining the behaviors associated with each competency, and greater clarity in explaining the underlying dimensions of the tool is recommended in order to improve the reliability of the instrument.
