Abstract

Perceptual assessment is the basis for diagnosis and evaluation of treatment in speech–language pathology (SLP). Students need to practise assessment skills. A web-based platform with cases and expert feedback in cleft palate disorders was developed in national collaboration. The aim of the study was to evaluate the results of individual training on assessment skills in SLP students and their perception of e-learning. Forty-five students performed tests using a pre- and post-test set-up. Perceptual assessments were demonstrated and instructions provided during teacher-led activities in ongoing fully scheduled courses; students were then individually trained in their free time. Reference samples were available. A significant improvement was found in rating and phonetic transcriptions after training. Positive comments concerned accessibility and practice time.
