CDI Competency Assessment

Overview

The CDI Competency Assessment is the perfect tool to self-assess your CDI educational needs, or to evaluate your staff to pinpoint areas where they will benefit from education.

This 100-question, easy-to-use online assessment tool is divided into four sections:

  • General knowledge 
  • Clinical content 
  • ICD-10-PCS 
  • Quality and risk adjustment 

The General Knowledge section comprises 40 questions as it’s designed to assess standard CDI competence with everyday issues. Each of the other three sections comprise 20 questions each.

As students work through the assessment, they are provided feedback on their level of proficiency for each topic, identifying areas of strength and areas for further study.

The CDI Competency Assessment can be used in many ways:

  • Pre-assessment as part of interview process for new hires 
  • Orientation assessment for new hires 
  • Benchmark employees throughout the onboarding process 
  • Pre- and post-education assessments to measure level of education retained 
  • Annual competency assessments and performance reviews 

The Assessment is offered singly or as a three-pack.

Managers will find the three-pack an ideal addition to their hiring process and onboarding tools. Use the first exam to assess a potential hire or benchmark proficiency level in their first week. Then assign the Assessment again after three months and after six months (or the cadence that works for you) to assess level of growth, ensure understanding, and maximize results.

This tool saves time for both you and your staff, as you can eliminate unnecessary training and plan educational activities that will most likely impact your bottom line.

Using the reporting tool in our convenient online training platform, managers not only review their staff’s overall scores, they can also download a detailed report to find out exactly which questions staff are struggling with.

Individual takers can use the “Reading Your Results” guide to identify areas for further study and review.
