Angoff method for standard setting

Date: Saturday 15 October 2016

Facilitator: Fred Roberts, Senior Lecturer in Physiology, Neil Rice, Senior Assessment Analyst, University of Exeter Medical School

Workshop description

The perfect process for standard setting remains elusive. The Angoff method is one of the most widely used, and this workshop will be aimed at showing how to apply it effectively.

It will start with a short presentation about the principles of standard setting, and move on to a practical demonstration of the Angoff process, involving group participation in a completely non-threatening environment – no prior expert content knowledge will be required!

Objectives of the session and the knowledge, attitudes and skills that participants should gain from it

We would hope that the participants will gain confidence in applying the Angoff process to best effect, which they may then take forward to use in their own standard setting.
