This article, published in the Journal of American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus by Elsevier,  reflects an expert  review of the tool International Council of Ophthalmology Ophthalmology Surgical Competency Assessment Rubric for Strabismus Surgery (ICO-OSCAR: strabismus).

A panel of seven content experts adapted ICO-OSCAR: strabismus by using a modified Dreyfus scale of skill acquisition and providing behavioral descriptors for each level of skill in each category. The tools were then reviewed by 12 international content experts. The main outcome measure was a consensus of the experts on the final rubric.

The review concludes that ICO-OSCAR: strabismus has face and content validity. It can be used globally to assess strabismus surgical skill.  Reliability and predictive validity are yet to be determined.
