For long exams it is a good idea to cast and train multiple SPs for individual stations (While this requires more extensive training to standardize performance and rating across SPs, it ensures an “understudy” will always be on hand) A rater does not complete the forms correctly? Designate a staff member to regularly review and count all forms during the OSCE so rating errors can be corrected in real time A participant enters the wrong station?
