Abstract—The performance based student assessment during
OSPE, challenge the examiners accurately capturing students’
practical skills. In order to solve this problem, this study
introduces a new Innovative procedure of videotaped objective
structured practical examination (VOSPE) in the area of health
care education to support the existing objective structured
practical exam (OSPE). The purpose of this study is to introduce
the videotaped OSPE among fifth semester physiotherapy
students to assess their stress level and performance irregular
objective structured practical exam (ROSPE). Statistical
analysis by one way ANOVA reported that there is no
significant difference (P=0.578 and P=0.095) in the students’
performance between the three stations. The student’s survey
feedback favors VOSPE for practical exam, which could be new
method in the health science curriculum, support to increase
OSPE station numbers, compensate personnel and to reduce
Index Terms—OSPE, physiotherapy, ROSPE, VOSPE, videotaped.
