OSCE can be used as a method of assessment in MPharm curricula to
assess competence at the shows how level of Miller’s triangle. It is important for all
assessments to be valid and reliable measures of competence, and one method of
improving the reliability of an assessment is by reducing variation between
assessors. It has been shown that training of OSCE assessors can reduce inter-rater
variation when marking.1 OSCE are a labour intensive method of assessment and at
least one trained assessor is required for each active station, this can pose a
challenge for successful OSCE delivery.
