Abstract: Instruction and evaluation of psychomotor skills within an allied health curriculum can be a tumultuous affair when multiple instructors are involved. The ability to be consistent and fair is difficult. A research project was performed involving two different instructor’s scoring the same set of students with repeated measures. This study compared the instructor’s scoring between real-time evaluation and video evaluation. Dartfish, a software program that is traditionally used in biomechanical analysis, was used as a means for video evaluation and mode of delivery to the instructor and student. This software program has the ability to send video files via the internet. In our presentation, discussion will occur in regards to the advantageous and disadvantageous of the two evaluation methods.
