Mentor Assessment of Proficiencies
(MAP) key points – a reminder
• Initials by sign-off / designated buddy mentors.
• Remember that only the sign-off mentor can confirm
achievement / non-achievement and award grade. Evidence
must be documented. Student needs to be provided with feedforward in overall comment to guide improvement.
• All statements must be initialed and dated, and evidence and
sign-off mentor signature must appear on each statement.
Grades for all criteria must be signed by sign-off mentor,
student and midwifery lecturer at tripartite. Omission of any
will result in referral in the module. Shared responsibility
for completion, but the student is responsible for the final
checking (reflecting importance of attention to detail in
clinical practice).

Evidence of achievement
Emma is good at identifying her strengths and weaknesses. She has
shared with me her Capability Plan in her e-portfolio which provides
evidence of this. She occasionally brings in literature from theory
to support new learning in practice, for example some recent
research on breastfeeding which I had not read.

Evidence of achievement
Emma has worked some shifts with me as buddy mentor. I have found that she responds
well to feedback. An example was when she did not record a woman’s urinary output and I
explained why this was important. Emma has since recorded all measurements.
Rose Williams
30/5/16
I have also found that Emma consistently responds well to feedback. She
will also always ask for help if she is unsure how to do something. I have
recently allocated her a couple of women and their babies to care for under
indirect supervision and she has provided very good care and sought my
advice when deviations from the norm such as pyrexia have been noted.

Comments and suggestions for improvement:
Emma is making very good progress and tries to link theory with
practice to inform her development. She would benefit from reading
around situations encountered in practice to further enhance this,
which will also help her to gain confidence in caring for women
experiencing normality under decreasing levels of supervision.

Look back at the statements on the previous 2 slides and the grading grid.
• Why do you think a grade of 65% was given?
• Is this justified?
• Would you have given a similar grade?
