CMTO is developing a new risk-based approach to assessments as part of STRiVE – the Quality Assurance Program.
RBA will engage and support RMTs in meeting the Standards of Practice and Regulations and promote their professional development and meaningful self-reflection.
STRiVE e-Learning Module
As part of the STRiVE cycle that starts in September 2022 and ends on November 30, 2022, all RMTs will complete the STRiVE e-learning module that introduces the risk-based approach to assessments.
RBA consists of two components:
- Practice Profile
- Practice Assessment
Component 1: Practice Profile
RMTs must complete their Practice Profile in early 2023.
Practice Profile is an online screening assessment where RMTs will demonstrate how they meet specific Standards of Practice and Regulations and identify any risks and supports to their competence. Results will be provided to RMTs automatically after completion.
Component 2: Practice Assessment
A small percentage of RMTs will be required to complete a practice assessment.
Based on specific Standards of Practice and Regulations, the practice assessment is composed of two sections:
- A pre-interview assignment (PIA); and
- A semi-structured interview (SSI).
The majority of RMTs who complete the practice assessment will not require additional follow-up. In rare cases, an RMT may be required to participate in a second practice assessment.
