Background The DARE2 (Detect Deterioration, Accurate Assessment, Rapid Respond, Effective Escalation) patient safety performance evaluation rubric was developed for the evaluation of final year nursing students. The rubric contains four domains of competency; Systematic Patient Assessment, Clinical Response, Psychomotor skills and Communication proficiency. Aim The aim of this research was to investigate the inter-rater reliability of data from the DARE2-Patient Safety Rubric. Method A non-experimental quantitative exploratory design was employed. Archived recorded performances of students (n=34) were independently evaluated by nurse lecturers who teach and examine in the simulation centre (n=4). Results Correlation Coefficients (ICCr) were greater than 0.70 for three of the four domains of practice and 0.58 for the fourth (Psychomotor skills). An ICCr of 0.75 for the overall rubric score is indicative of excellent reliability. Percentage agreement for the overall rubric was 59% highlighting the difference between consensus and consistency estimates of inter-rater reliability. Internal consistency was also good achieving a Cronbachs alpha of 0.82.
