Knobology and Workflow
Purpose: Test the psychomotor skills of knobology and image orientation ONLY.

How to Administer:
1. Instructions to be read aloud to the trainee are in CAPS. Regular text is for Instructors.
2. Start by informing the trainee that:
a. This test is a Zero Stress Assessment of their current skills so we can teach them better.
b. They will have one minute to complete the task.
c. Then they will need to point out the structures requested on the screen as requested.
d. They can simple say "Nope" to indicate that they have no idea how to perform a task requested. But this should be extremely rare - encourage even the nervous Nellie to give it a try.
3. For all tasks, performance must be at least "just adequate" to utilize clinically. When in doubt, be a little tough.
