EMS End of Series Test

EMS End of Series Test

The College mark for this piece of courseware is based on several performance criteria.

  • Colleges will mostly use an external examiner for End of Series exams.

The student will be required to:

  1. Do a 90 minute practical demonstration of techniques on an experienced ‘client’.
    • The topics will be supplied by the examiner
    • The topics will only relate to the material from the wedge of information being examined.
    • The student may have a book available but should only require the briefest of glances at an aspect of the material.
    • It is not acceptable to use the book for every step of the techniques as this does not indicate competency.
  2. Do a 60 minute oral on the material
    • This will be a series of short answer questions
    • The student will only be asked questions relating to the material from the wedge of information being examined.
  3. Do a 60 minute balance using all finger modes taught to date on an experienced ‘client’
    • The student will utilize the full balancing protocol
    • The goal selected (supplied) will require pretests from the material being examined
    • this is an open book balance (however, see 1.3 above)
  4. Professional Standards. The examiner will notice the following:
    • Familiarity with the reference materials relating to the ‘wedge’.
      • Has relevant tools available to use
    • Appropriate dress
    • Appropriate language
      • sensitivity to ethnic, cultural and gender issues
    • Does the student keep the client informed and involved at all times
    • Overall manner
  5. Show the examiner all of their completed assessment books for the series.
    • The examiner will decide if this work is competent.
  6. Show the examiner four marked Case Studies where a client has been seen two or three times.
    • The client chosen will be one where material from this wedge was a significant factor in their management.
    • The student will have used the same Case Study protocol as in BKP 110.
    • The student will have used the ICPKP Balancing Protocol and have the balancing record sheets attached to the Case Study.

The on-line test consists of multi-choice questions.

  1. The student can only do the on-line test for the series after the College has posted a mark on the web.
  2. Questions are randomly selected from the question pool of all units in the wedge.
  3. As the test will take more than 30 mins to complete, it can be attempted in several sittings.

After all pieces of the End of Series assessments are complete, the student will be issued with their Certificate of Proficiency for this portion of the ICPKP International Diploma in Kinesiology.
