EVALUATIVE EXPERIENCES OF NURSING STUDENTS THROUGH SIMULATION OF TV DEBATES WITH HEALTH TOPICS

Introduction:
In the field of nursing action, it is observed that these professionals do not usually appear in television debates, due in part to the insecurity in their communication skills. Despite the adaptation of the European Higher Education Area in Spain, it is not usual for university students to participate in their own assessment process, reducing the opportunity for them to develop a critical position with respect to their assessment capacity in the classroom.
The aim of this study is to know the opinion of nursing students regarding the evaluation process of communication skills when they act as moderators and debate participants in simulated TV debates.

Methods:
An activity was established in the third-year students of the Faculty of Nursing of the University of Cadiz (Spain), consisting of five simulations of TV debates on health topics. The sessions were audiovisual recorded, with the students acting like audience, debate participant or moderator, depending on the session. All participants in the discussion tables signed a document of transfer of image rights. The students who acted like audience in each session evaluated the communication skills of the moderator and debate participants.
Subsequently, an opinion questionnaire was distributed among the students about the communication skills when they acted like an audience, debate participant or moderator. All items presented a Lickert scale from 0 (totally disagree) to 10 (totally agree), except one to collect their openly opinions.

Results:
Of the total number of students who completed the questionnaire (65), 41.5% were exclusively audience in all sessions, 52.3% took part in some session like debate participant and 6.2% like moderator. In the opinion expressed when they acted like an audience, it should be noted that the highest score was obtained in the item "I evaluate in a more objective way because it does not affect the mark of my classmates", with 9.14 +- 1.17 points.
In the case of their opinions they had when they acted like debate participants or moderators, the highest average score was attributed to the item "I consider audiovisual recordings as an adequate method to evaluate communication skills" with 8.67 +- 1.20 points.
The objectivity of the assessment is a relevant aspect for students when it does not influence the marks of their classmates. However, this evaluation allows teachers to contrast it with their own evaluation system, with the possibility of establishing possible changes in their assessment methodology.

Conclusions:
The evaluation of students with no link in the marks of their own classmates can offer an objective comparative tool against the evaluative methodology of the professors and lecturers. In addition, they observe that audiovisual recordings are an essential assessment methodology in the improvement of their communicative skills.
