Developing and validating a nursing website evaluation questionnaire
If a significant learning outcome requires negative phrasing, such as identification of dangerous laboratory or clinical practices, the negative element should be emphasized with italics or capitalization. A question stem is preferable because it allows the student to focus on answering the question rather than holding the partial sentence in working memory and sequentially completing it with each alternative (Statman 1988).The cognitive load is increased when the stem is constructed with an initial or interior blank, so this construction should be avoided.Also, we understand that EBP is gaining knowledge and skills, as well as increasing positive attitudes toward EBP that will promote a change in behaviour to implement EBP in practice.This study aims to develop a psychometric test of the Evidence Based Practice Evaluation Competence Questionnaire (EBP-COQ) among undergraduate nursing students.
Validity is the degree to which a test measures the learning outcomes it purports to measure.
Nursing educators need rigorously developed instruments to assess competency in evidence based practice (EBP) at undergraduate level.
This concept is defined as the capability to choose and use an integrated combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes with the intention to develop a task in a certain context.
Cronbach’s alpha was 0.888 for the entire questionnaire.
The factor solution explained 55.55% of the variance.
