PDG End of Series Test

The College mark for this piece of courseware is for a full balance by the student on either their teacher or another experienced Kinesiologist, and utilising the full balancing protocol. You should choose a goal that is likely to “show” material from the PDG wedge of the chart.

This is an “open-book” balance.

The student will be required to:

  1. Do a 60 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 30 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 one marked Case Study 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.

If no material from the PDG series comes up in the balance the student will be asked to demonstrate several techniques from the series.

The on-line test consists of multi-choice questions, randomly selected from the question pool of PDG units. As the test will take more than 30 mins to complete, it can be attempted in several sittings.

After both pieces of assessment are complete, students will be issued with their Certificates of Proficiency in this.
