|Somatosensory Examination and Evaluation Study Guide Key Features
The following section will briefly describe the key features of the guide. The learner is encouraged to review the “Read Me First” page if he/she has not already done so.
Performance tools reflect a variety of resources that can be used to augment the learning experience, such as a laboratory study guide, worksheets, and study tools. Most performance tools will offer the option to open the tool in Acrobat Reader, save the tools for future use, and/or print the tool for use in the classroom, laboratory, or clinic.
Learning checkpoint testing interactions
This module contains a variety of testing interactions that will allow the learner to test his or her understanding of module content. Testing interactions are integrated throughout the module and include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, true/false, and drag and drop testing items. All testing interactions provide feedback to enhance learning.
Learning checkpoint patient problems
This module contains short patient problems or clinical case scenarios. The initial case scenarios will ask the learner to identify if somatosensory examination is indicated and to provide the rationale for his or her decision. The later case scenarios will ask the learner to identify if somatosensory examination is indicated, to identify the specific tests or measures that should be performed, and to provide the rationale for his or her decisions. After the learner completes a case scenario worksheet, he/she can review how a clinical expert responded to the same question.
The module contains Flash videos of the tests and measures described in the module performed by a rehabilitation clinical practitioner.
