Assessment of Reasoning Tool
Errors in clinical reasoning are central factors in many diagnostic errors.
Use the Assessment of Reasoning Tool (ART) to assess a learner’s clinical reasoning skills during patient presentations.
- 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.
- Download the Users Guide for information on how to use the tool during assessment.
- View the 5 faculty development videos (about 4 minutes each) to guide your use of the ART.
These videos were produced by the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine with support from a grant from the ABIM Foundation. We welcome feedback about the ART, videos, and other content on this page.
