Instrument Use

SWEAP’s Field Instrument (FPPAI) and our Curriculum Instrument (FCAI) are sufficient to provide a direct measure (FPPAI) and additional measure (FCAI) of multiple dimensions of all EPAS 2015 competencies. The Exit Instrument provides a measure of multiple aspects of the Implicit Curriculum.

Aggregated reports for the FPPAI, FCAI and Exit Instrument are formatted to provide the necessary information for reporting assessment in response to EPAS 2015, and regional accreditors.
