  Title The effect of COVID phases on basic life support objective structured clinical examinations (OSCES) with chiropractic students
Journal J Contemp Chiropr. 2021 ;4(1):1-7
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Introduction: To determine if there was a statistical difference in the basic life support (BLS) OSCE grades with different teaching and testing methods used during 3 Covid-19 phases.

Methods: This was a retrospective analysis of BLS OSCE grades by Covid-19 Phase, using ANOVA and Kruskal-Wallis tests.

Results: No statistical difference was found between Covid-19 phase with respect to BLS OSCE grades via ANOVA. Due to normality and n number differences, Kruskal-Wallis test was performed and revealed no significance (p=0.583). Analysis by estimation (effect size and confidence interval) revealed only a slight insignificant decrease of grades in phase 2.

Discussion: ANOVA and Kruskal-Wallis revealed no significance and therefore the null hypothesis cannot be rejected. Some difficulties performing BLS OSCEs online included cheating, manikin availability, positional concerns, and technical glitches. Limitations were as follows: video influences, unknown GPA influences, retrospective design, stress influences, ceiling affect and prompter affect.

Conclusion: This study did not support a difference between teaching and testing methods during Covid-19 phases for BLS OSCE grades. These conclusions must be balanced with limitations. Further studies should provide a plan to eliminate or capture any main affects or interactions.
