PACT: Performance Assessment for Communication and Teamwork Tool Set
Performance Assessment for Communication and Teamwork Tool Set was developed to assess performance on team work and communication in simulated scenarios.
The Performance Assessment for Communication and Teamwork Tool Set (PACT) was developed to assess teamwork and communication performance in simulated environments.
- University of Washington – Macy Interprofessional Collaborative Project (funded by Macy and Hearst Foundations)
- A simulation based, team training program for health professional students – developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
- Video Coding Sheet for Performance Assessment for Communication and Teamwork (PACT)
The tools are available here and more information about this project and the organization can be obtained from the University of Washington Center for Interprofessional Education, Research and Practice website.

PACT-novice is designed for novice raters who are not familiar with TeamSTEPPS or who do not have previous coder training experience to perform a real-time assessment. PACT-novice contains the 5 TeamSTEPPS constructs and sample behaviors of constructs are provided on the tool. Raters are asked to rate the constructs using a 5-point quality scale and to record notes in the “comment” column. A list of definitions of key terms and concepts describing team communication was developed to accompany the PACT-novice tool in order to help raters understand key concepts of TeamSTEPPS.
