Background Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) examinations were cancelled in the short term. This project described how to offer medical students an alternative assessment at Miller's competence level of "shows how". Methods Students produced videos in which they can be seen performing various physical examinations related to family medicine consultations. Trained assessors rated the videos uploaded to the learning platform and gave verbal feedback if requested. Results The grading (65 "very good" and 38 "good") was very mild. Twelve per cent of the students requested verbal feedback. Their evaluation of the procedure was mixed. The evaluators consistently assessed their task and the process as positive. Technically, the video-based assessment could be implemented without any problems. Conclusions The short-term implementation of a video-based assessment in the context of medical education proved to be feasible. It could serve not only as an emergency solution under a pandemic, but also as an additional opportunity for formative feedback in the future.
