Self-assessment is considered to be a major component of learning in public health1. It provides an opportunity for health professionals to reflect on competency-based strengths and weaknesses in order to identify learning needs and reinforce new skills or behaviors in order to improve performance.
The MCH Navigator has been collecting data from our online Self-Assessment for five years and generated a database with over 2,000 completed assessments. During this time, we have collaborated with several universities on an annual basis to provide customized self-assessment data reports for their students. We would like to explain the process, show you examples and offer this service to anyone nationwide who would like to benefit from this specialized reporting.
We pull data from our database based on the client request. If learners have taken the assessment more than once, we provide a pre/post analysis of mean changes in their knowledge and skills across the 12 MCH Leadership Competencies. If learners have only taken the assessment once, we provide a baseline report of their knowledge and skills across the 12 competencies. There are two ways to request analysis. You can request:
All we need from you are the email addresses (or single address if requesting an individual analysis) of learners of interest. Please email us, and we'll get the process started for you!
Typical requests take up to three to four business days.
We ensure all data is kept confidential throughout the reporting process and label each record as learner #1, learner #2 etc. A Learner Identifier Key is generated and attached with the final report that links data to email addresses only.
The final report includes:
