  • You will find that this will be a very valuable course for your career as an OT.

    By the end you will know how to evaluate a client’s occupational performance by a variety of methods.

    The content includes a variety of practical experiences for you.
  • In pairs from your tutorial group you will be assigned one of the standardised assessments we have in our dept library.

    You will be able to sign these out for one day at a time to get the required data. Assessments must not be removed from the campus.

    Details about where and when to sign out and source these assessments will be posted on blackboard announcements and tutorials.

    Please note even though you can work in pairs to examine the assessment, all submitted work must be individual.

    Assessment Criteria:
    Student competence will be assessed through the:
    Description of the assessment and its potential uses in evaluating client status
    Explanation of psychometric data relating to the assessment
    Discussion of the assessment’s potential application to various client populations
    Identification of the limitations of assessment in clinical practice
    Evidence of scholarly research in to the assessment tool

    2. 2. I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians, the indigenous peoples whose land we are meeting on this semester and pay my respects to the elders both past, present and in the future. OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast
    3. 3. Course Objectives Understand the role of OT evaluation in the context of complete client care Knowledge of a range of evaluation procedures Understanding how neurosciences relate to occupational performance Understand that evaluation of occupational performance, on the basis of physical, cognitive and psycho-emotional abilities, occurs in the context of the environment (P-E-O) OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast
    4. 4. Course Content  Evidence-based approach to choosing evaluation tools  Occupational analysis  Evaluating movement  Evaluating sensory perception  Evaluating cognitive and perceptual function  Evaluating Psychosocial Factors  Evaluating Sexuality  Functional Capacity Evaluation  Evaluating the Person-Environment Fit  Test Administration  Interpreting Evaluation Data  Documentation  Using Evaluation to Inform Intervention OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast

    8. 8. Course Assessments 1. Online Quizzes  Weeks 2-11 (by Monday each week) ~10 x 3% = 30% 2. Video Analysis Exam  Week 7 (in tutorial) ~ 40% 3. Assessment Review  Week 12 (Monday) ~ 30% OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast PLUS: Goniometry - Week 3 – in-class formative assessment
    9. 9. Goniometry – Week 3 Description:  During class time, students will demonstrate that they can measure range of motion of one joint of another student using a goniometer. The joint to be measured will be randomly assigned from a pool of five possible alternatives. Assessment Criteria:  Students will be assessed on their communication with the “client”, their ability to accurately measure range of motion, and their understanding of the results in the context of occupational performance. OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast
    10. 10. Weekly Quizzes – Weeks 2-11 Description:  This is designed to demonstrate your foundation knowledge of neuroscience and occupational therapy evaluation.  After completing an online learning activity (as part of the weekly online learning materials) you will complete one quiz per week from week 2 to week 11 inclusive. Assessment Criteria:  Each quiz will assess your ability to apply information from the online lecture material and learning activities.  Each quiz will close at midnight on each Monday between weeks 2-11 (e.g. Topic 2 quiz will close at 9:00pm on Monday of week 2).  You will have 30 minutes to complete the quiz from the time you start. OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast
    11. 11. Video Analysis Exam – Week 7 Description:  You will view recorded footage of a person engaging in a series of linked occupations. While viewing the client performing the occupations you will record your observations about characteristics and quality of the performance that appear to be impacted by physical, cognitive and sensory impairments. You will record your observations on a template provided. Assessment Criteria:  Identify client performance characteristics  Identify barriers to occupational performance  Identify issues with performance components that might be creating barriers  Consider the physical, cognitive and psychosocial factors underpinning performance  Extrapolate occupational performance barriers to activities of daily living (e.g. supermarket shopping) OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast
    12. 12. Description:  Students will review the psychometric properties, strengths and weaknesses and applications of a standardised assessment tool used in occupational therapy practice.  Oral presentation of findings and production of a summary hand-out for peers of no more than 1200 words  In a group of between 2 and 4 people you will present an overview of an assessment tool that outlines purpose of the assessment tool, the psychometric properties, strengths and weaknesses and applications of the tool in occupational therapy practice.  Group task, you will be allocated an assessment tool to review, audience is a group of second year occupational therapy students, 1200 words, APA format. Twenty minute presentation followed by 5- 10 minute Q&A period. OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast Assessment Review & In-class Presentation – Week 12 (all submit by Monday)
    13. 13. Assessment Criteria:  Student competence will be assessed through the:  Description of the assessment and its potential uses in evaluating client status  Explanation of psychometric data relating to the assessment  Discussion of the assessment’s potential application to various client populations  Identification of the limitations of assessment in clinical practice  Evidence of scholarly research in to the assessment tool OCC212 University of the Sunshine Coast Assessment Review & In-class Presentation – Week 12
    14. 14.
