KIPRIME podcast episode 8 - Professor Christina St Onge
An alternative approach to tackling issues of validity – an interview with Professor Christina St Onge.
Christina St-Onge is professor in the Department of Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Université de Sherbrooke, Quebec. She completed her PhD at Université Laval in Measurement and Assessment in 2007 and she did her post-doctorate fellowship at the Medical Council of Canada.
Since 2008, Christina has been a scientist at the CPSS – Centre for Health Sciences Education.
Her research program stems from a psychometric perspective; wanting to quantify measurement error and distinguish it from the ‘true score’ but has evolved to draw outside the traditional psychometric lines when tackling issues of validity. She combines her expertise in psychometrics with a perspective stemming from social sciences to address issues of validity and validation. In this episode of the KIPRIME podcast, Christina talks to Alina Jenkins about this non-traditional approach and also how technology and patients could be leveraged to enhance the quality of health profession trainees’ assessment and the validity of assessment data interpretation.
