Abstract
Background The technical skill of surgical trainees is not well assessed. This study aimed (1) to compare the reliability of three scoring systems, (2) to compare live and bench formats and (3) to assess construct validity of a test of operative skill. Methods Parallel examinations of operative skill, one using live animals and one using simulations, were developed. Performance was graded using operation-specific checklists, detailed global rating forms and pass/fail judgements. Twenty surgical residents each took both formats. Results Disattenuated correlations between live and bench scores were high (0.69–0.72). Mean inter-rater reliability across stations ran...
