Advancing Assessment and Evaluation

This is your gateway to finding measurement tools that can be used to assess individual learners, groups, teams, practice environments, and organizations; and to evaluate the impact of interprofessional education programs and collaborative practice on Triple Aim Outcomes. 

Interprofessional Socialization and Valuing Scale (ISVS-21)

The ISVS-21 represents a refinement of a previous tool (ISVS-24, King et al., 2010); both are self-report instruments designed to measure interprofessional socialization among students and health practitioners and their readiness to function in interprofessional teams.  Items were developed to capture respondent beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors at baseline and at post-intervention time periods.  The original ISVS has been used in multiple studies.  The purpose of the study reported here was to...

Students Perceptions of Interprofessional Clinical Education Revised (SPICE-R)

The SPICE-R is a short (10-item) self-report survey designed to measure health professions students' perceptions of interprofessional education and interprofessional collaborative practice.  It represents a variation of an earlier instrument (SPICE-1), which was developed specifically for medical and pharmacy students. Items reflect a 3-factor model capturing interprofessional teamwork and team-based practice; roles and responsibilities for collaborative practice; and patient outcomes from...

Interdisciplinary Team Process and Performance Survey (ITPPS)

The ITPPS was designed to assess interdisciplinary team process and performance in long-term care settings, particularly those of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). Specifically, the tool measures team processes (i.e., leadership, communication, coordination, and conflict management) and team outcomes (i.e., team cohesion and perceived unit effectiveness) in a 59-item self-report instrument. The results are meant to identify weaknesses in team processes that can be...

Team Evaluation and Assessment Measure (TEAM)

This tool was designed to collect individuals' perceptions of multidisciplinary teamwork (MDT) performance in cancer care teams during meetings. Specifically, perceptions of the team, infrastructure for team meetings, meeting organization and administration, patient-centered clinical decision making, and clinical governance are measured in a 47-item self-report survey. The content is based on recommendations from a large-scale survey about effectiveness in MDT in the UK.  A validation...

Collaboration and Satisfaction About Care Decisions (CSACD)

The CSACD was originally designed to measure nurse-physician collaboration in intensive care units (ICUs) as they make specific decisions regarding patient transfers. The tool contains a six-item measure of collaboration as well as a global collaboration item, a decision process satisfaction item, and a final decision satisfaction item. The results, which are at the level of a specific patient decision, are meant to support linking nurse-physician collaboration to ICU patient outcomes. The 1994...
