The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is a useful multi-use assessment tool which may be used to evaluate health care providers of various disciplines in a clinical setting. It appraises proficiency, through direct observation based on objective or unbiased testing. It is accurate, objective and consistent letting uniform testing of clinical skills among an extensive range of students. OSCE software, developed at Manipal College of Nursing (MCON), a constituent unit of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) is a windows-based platform which is integrated with student’s information system and is designed to access only through the intranet of MAHE. It is a smart approach which enables the examiners to mark the response of each student in different OSCE stations accurately with a single click; the report can be generated in excel format and is reproducible multiple times. It is undeniably a valued assessment tool with extraordinary features and advantages.
