Grading of practice has been incorporated into the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s midwifery education standards since 2009.

The literature identifies that grading practice can be fraught with challenges not least related to subjectivity, inconsistency, lack of transparency and grade inflation. An established group of UK-wide, lead midwife educators recognised these challenges and through completing a three phase project, developed an evidence-based Practice Assessment Toolkit which aims to facilitate consistent, robust and objective grading of student practice. It is suggested that this toolkit may be useful to those developing practice assessment documentation or writing evidence to reflect a student’s progress and achievement in practice
