This paper reports a project that assessed a series of portfolios assembled by a cohort of participants attending a course for prospective general practice trainers. Design The reliability of judgements about individual 'components', together with an overall global judgement about performance were studied. Setting NHSE South & West, King Alfred's College, Winchester and Institute of Community Studies, Bournemouth University. Subjects Eight experienced general practice trainers recruited from around Wessex, which incorporates Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight. Results The reliability of individual assessor's judgements (i.e. their consistency) was moderate, but inter-rater reliability did not reach a level which could support making a safe summative judgement. The levels of reliability reached were similar to other subjective assessments and perhaps reflected individuality of personal agendas of both the assessed and the assessors, and variations in portfolio structure and content. Conclusions Suggestions for approaches in future are made.
