OSAT – Optometry Self Assessment Tool
OSAT is a digital tool to identify gaps between the curriculum and the curriculum of the European Diploma and generates a report of the gaps that can be send to ECOO.
Documentation related to optometry alignment with ECOO (Pillar 1)
Benchmarking reports sent to ECOO and analysis reports by ECOO
The purpose of benchmarking is to use the provisional opinion as a basis for developing courses to the standard of the European Diploma in Optometry (Diploma). In the OCULUS project this has been used to assess the alignment of the knowledge and competency base of the participants over a three year period. Benchmarking can be used as the basis for considering application for full accreditation of courses as meeting the standard of the Diploma. ECOO’s assessment is the Panel’s opinion on the probable alignment with the knowledge base and competencies of the European Diploma in Optometry based on our analysis of that information.
