This article, published in the Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, reflects an expert review of the tool International Council of Ophthalmology-Ophthalmology Surgical Competency Assessment Rubric for Lateral Tarsal Strip Surgery.

A panel of seven content experts adapted tool 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 11 international content experts. The main outcome measure was a consensus of the experts on the final rubric.

The review concluded the International Council of Ophthalmology-Ophthalmology Surgical Competency Assessment Rubric for Lateral Tarsal Strip Surgery has face and content validity. It can be used globally to assess lateral tarsal strip surgical skill. Reliability and predictive validity still need to be determined.
