Educational Development

Testing for the Best

Testing for the Best: Tools for Educational Development is a web-based resource to support those in NHSScotland who are involved in planning, developing and/or commissioning learning for NHSScotland staff.

Developed by NES in partnership with colleagues across NHSScotland, Testing for the Best is a flexible resource, which staff can dip into when they need support with specific areas relating to the development of educational solutions. It features:

  • Information grouped around three 'test' areas, helping individuals or teams to identify the most appropriate outcome for their situation, make appropriate choices in the design and delivery of learning, and get the best value from the educational solution being developed
  • 'Decision-making guides' which highlight key issues involved in each of the 'test' areas
  • Short information guides to the topics included in the decision guides, highlighting why each area is important
  • Guidance checklists for most topics, providing prompts/checklists for thinking and decisions
  • Links to a short list of online resources, for those who would like more information on a particular topic.
