Abstract: Traditionally, classroom instruction using summative assessment has been the standard to test students knowledge of the course objectives. The Objective structured Clinical Evaluation (OSCE) was developed to assess clinical competence. This summative methodologic approach is intended to decrease variables, limit complexity, and clarify objectives to test students knowledge. The structural component focuses on the clinical objectives reflected in a checklist format. When compared to traditional method of evaluation the OSCE prove to be very effective tool to test the knowledge and practice of nursing students. So the investigator was interested to compare the traditional method of evaluation with OSCE and prove the OSCE is the best method to evaluate the clinical competence of students. This present study was carried out quantitatively with quasi experimental research with post-test only group design. Undergraduate II year nursing students 60 numbers were grouped into two groups by simple random sampling technique and all students underwent lecture cum demonstration on how to monitor vaccine vial. One group was evaluated by traditional method of evaluation by administering questionnaire and evaluated by paper and pencil method and another group evaluated by OSCE. The results shows that all students in traditional method of evaluation scored average score whereas OSCE method of evaluation students scored good score. The traditional method of evaluation showed mean and standard deviation of 11.3 -2.11 whereas in OSCE it shows 17 3.82. The significant mean difference between them was 19 %. In paired-t test the calculated value was higher (7.65) than the table value (1.699) at 0.05 level of significance, shown the significant difference and proved OSCE was effective method of evaluation. There were no association found with demographic variable due to homogeneity of sample distribution.
