Main Discussion.  Examination is the most standard method for assessing a student’s learning. Online examinations are developed two ways. First, it can be created in a Microsoft Word document and uploaded to the course or secondly, the test questions can be generated within a learning management system (LMS) using the provided means (Bristol, 2011). The challenge in writing multiple choice questions is creating a reasonable measure of the learner’s knowledge while not providing clues within a question as opposed to its content. The use of deception as the way to increase difficulty should be avoided. One thing about multiple-choice questions is that the answer is present for the learners to decipher. (Dickinson, 2019). The lesson plan that I used to create multiple choice questions covers the different colors that are used to identify IV catheter gauges and the contents of an IV start pack.  I have never created multiple choice questions for a test or used the technology needed to do so. It was difficult at first to create queries that covered the objectives at the same time and not to include the answer to the question within the question. I also had to make a conscious effort not the put the correct answer to the questions in the C or D position. Another challenge was finding a website that I was comfortable with using and one that I could easily navigate to create my multiple-choice test. Survey monkey is a free online survey that has the capability for quizzes. The survey tool is used frequently on my job to poll employees on current issues.

Screencast Title:

Intravenous needle catheter selection and IV therapy guidelines


(on-site, online, or hybrid)

This lesson is intended for the hybrid environment. Student nurses and novice nurses will watch this screencast before engaging in on-site intravenous (IV) needle selection for IV starts

Screencast Goal:

This screencast will increase the awareness on the importance of IV catheter size selection depending on the intended use and/or patient population and IV therapy guidelines.

Description of Screencast lesson:

This screen cast is directed toward nursing students and novice nurses. The different sizes of IV catheters based on color and the supplies needed will be reviewed. The participants will participate by watching a short video immediately after screencast on IV catheters and therapy guidelines, answer 10 questions at the end of the lesson, print certificate of completion and bring certificate to skill lab for competency checkoff.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this lesson students and nurses will be able to

  • Identify the different sizes of IV catheters based on color
  • Verbalize uses for different catheter sizes
  • Identify supplies needed for IV starts
  • Document appropriately
  • Demonstrate at least 80% competency on post test on IV catheter sizes, usage, and therapy guidelines
  • Demonstrate an IV start in an on-site skills lab



1. Match the gauge IV catheter with the appropriate color

_____24-gauge                         pink

_____22-gauge                         yellow

_____20-gauge                         blue

_____18-Gauge                        green

2. What two gauges of IV catheters are commonly used during

for rapid fluid administration?

  1. 24 gauge and 22 gauge
  2. 18 gauge and 20 gauge
  3. 20 gauge and 24 gauge
  4. 22 gauge and 20 gauge

3. Select the appropriate list of supplies found in an IV start Kit.

A. extension set, tape, and 20-gauge catheter

B. Sterile dressing, tape, tourniquet, gauze pad, extension set, and

chlorhexidine swab

It is important to understand the evidence behind the appropriate size selection of IV catheters to decrease the number of IV infiltrations.

When initiating an IV therapy nursing staff must asses the patient appropriately, the intended use of the IV, select the appropriate size of the IV catheter, and document appropriately.

Nursing staff must prioritize  care to include assessing the IV site or sites for redness and/or swelling

Evaluate and Revise

If I were to recreate my Screencast, I would: 

First, I would make sure that the slides correspond with the lesson as it is discussed. I would include a slide for the 14-gauge catheter, 16- gauge catheter, and the supplies inside the IV start kit. The slide for the IV catheters would include the front of the packaging along with the backside of the packaging. The time of the screencast would not exceed five minutes.
