For those candidates that will be engaged in the re-certification process as it pertains to C-CAT (FO)(MB)(P) and CMLE, the organizing and evaluative committee would like to share some details regarding this process.
Whilst all candidates will have access and be expected to review the lecture and study materials and take part in the question/answer session during the course itself, you will not be required to undertake the multiple-choice examination given that you successfully completed this task when you were first certified.
Rather, your re-certification evaluation includes a final assessment experience managed by peerScholar, an evidence-based educational technology out of the Advanced Learning Technologies Lab of the University of Toronto Scarborough.
What this means, is that you will submit one of your examination reports specific to the re-certification program you are applying for (i.e., a catastrophic report if you are seeking C-CAT re-certification and an IME report if you are seeking CMLE re-certification).
The peerScholar process you will engage in was designed to both assess and enhance your learning experience. Specifically, you will be asked to submit your de-identified report. In the next step you will review, analyze, and provide feedback to a de-identified report submitted by one of your peers, ultimately giving it some feedback about how their report could be improved. As you engage in this stage of the peerScholar process, another set of peers will assess your work. In the third phase you will see the feedback those peers gave to you, and you will be asked to assess that feedback and ultimately incorporate the feedback you find useful into a final revised report. All of this is undertaken anonymously. This process will give you a very rich perspective on how examiner reports can vary, and what makes a given report especially high quality. As you move through the peerScholar experience you will not only get the chance to demonstrate your own level of expertise, but you will also enhance your learning by both giving feedback to your peers and learning from the feedback they attach to your work. To these ends, the peerScholar process enhances problem solving and communication skills whilst candidates find it both engaging and extremely valuable.
Ultimately, and idealistically, our re-certification process will not only ensure ongoing core competency but importantly, promote collegiality and individual assessor growth within our industry.
