Development of an Instrument to Measure Nursing Student Teamwork SkillsClinical Simulation in Nursing
AbstractBackground The purpose of this project was to develop an instrument to measure nursing student teamwork skills in a simulated environment. Method An eight-step instrument development process was used that included literature review and evaluation of face/content validity and inter-rater reliability. Results Psychometric quantitative analysis of the final 11-item instrument included a scale content validity index of 0.98 and individual item content validity index scores ranging from 0.75 to 1.0 for the 11 items. Inter-rater reliability demonstrated consistency with interclass correlation coefficient of 0.836. Conclusions An eight-step process can be used by nurse educators to develop psychometrically sound instruments for use in student evaluation.
