Topic 2: Health Assessment of the Toddler, Preschool, and School-Aged Child
Complete the Digital Experience. The estimated average time to complete this assignment each time is 1 hour and 30 minutes. Please note, this is an average time. Some students may need longer.
This clinical experience is a focused exam. Students must score at the level of “Proficiency” in the Shadow Health Digital Clinical Experience. Students have three opportunities to complete this assignment and score at the Proficiency level. Upon completion, submit the lab pass to the instructor in the classroom.
Students successfully scoring within the Proficiency level in the Digital Clinical Experience on the first attempt will earn a grade of 100 points; students successfully scoring at the Proficiency level on the second attempt will earn a grade of 90 points; and students successfully scoring at the Proficiency level on the third attempt will earn a grade of 80 points.
Students who do not pass the performance-based assessment by scoring within the Proficiency level in three attempts will receive a failing grade (68 points).
This assessment will allow access to an Interview Guide to help students navigate their first digital experience. Subsequent assignments do not utilize an Interview Guide. Use this guide as needed to complete the assignment for this topic.
Please review the assignment in the Health Assessment Student Handbook in Shadow Health prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
If Proficiency is not achieved on the first attempt, it is recommended that you review your answers with the correct answers on the Experience Overview page. Review the report by clicking on each tab to the left titled Transcript, Subjective Data Collection, Objective Data Collection, Documentation, and SBAR to compare your work. Reviewing this overview and the course resources may help you improve your score.
