Assessment of Reasoning Tool

Errors in clinical reasoning are central factors in many diagnostic errors.

The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine has developed a straightforward evaluation tool to support educators in assessing a learner’s clinical reasoning skills during patient presentations.

Use the Assessment of Reasoning Tool (ART) to assess a learner’s patient presentation.

  • The ART will guide your feedback conversation with your learner and serve as formative feedback.
  • The ART can also help programs fulfill LCME and ACGME requirements for assessing diagnostic and clinical reasoning skills.
  • View these 5 faculty development videos (about 4 minutes each) to guide your use of the ART.
