AIMThe purpose of the study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Facilitator Competency Rubric (FCR).BACKGROUNDThe FCR was developed to fill a deficit in tools available to holistically evaluate competency of simulation facilitators.METHODThe FCR has five constructs: preparation, prebriefing, facilitation, debriefing, and evaluation. Benner's novice-to-expert theory was used to categorize subcomponents. Expert panel validation was sought. Participants from four baccalaureate nursing programs completed 107 observations of facilitators using the FCR.RESULTSInterrater reliability as assessed using generalizability theory was good. G coefficients ranged from good to excellent (.80 to .99). FCR items appeared to be well constructed. Term, day of the week, time of day, and simulation type were significant predictors of the FCR global score.CONCLUSIONThe FCR is a valid, reliable tool that can be used for formative or summative evaluation of simulation facilitators. Scores can guide and prioritize faculty development.
