Abstract

This chapter presents a case study of an attempt to deal with the issue of assessment in clinical placements. A solution was to establish an Australian national standard in assessment for all educators involved in the particular discipline of medical diagnostic radiography. Rather than reinventing the wheel, the Australian national standard already established for speech pathology (Ferguson, McAllister, McAllister, & Lincoln, 2006) was used as a guideline. This chapter, therefore, summarises the experience of developing national assessment standards in the discipline of medical diagnostic radiography. The authors believe the lessons learned can be applied to many other health professions.
