This project engaged the nutrition and dietetics education community in exploring the challenges in assessment of entry-level competence and how to support best practice assessment of competence across three domains of practice: individual case management, food service management and community/public health nutrition. Data was collected from university academic staff, practice educators, novice assessors and graduates to identify current practice and challenges to best practices assessment. A Delphi survey was conducted to identify which competency standards should be assessed in the practice/placement environment, which should be assessed in a classroom/university setting and which could be assessed in either environment. Workshops were held to discuss entry-level competence. A resource was developed to support educators in designing and implementing best-practice assessment for nutrition and dietetics; it is available to download from the Monash university website.These outcomes are an initial yet significant step in supporting universities and practice educators in individual care, food service management and community and public health nutrition practice settings to accurately assess competence of their students against national Competency Standards.
