The AGREE A3 Research Team has developed two training tools to assist AGREE II users to effectively apply the tool. The tools were evaluated through a randomized control trial, for more information about the trial visit the AGREE-related publications webpage or click here for the publication.
This tool provides an Avatar-guided overview of the AGREE II tool. This tool takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Expanding upon the Avatar-guided tutorial, the “Practice Exercise” tool provides trainees with the opportunity to appraise a test practice guideline with the AGREE II; upon submitting their ratings, the training tool system provides immediate feedback to how the trainees responses compares with those of expert ratings.
On average, completion of this tool takes approximately one hour.
The AGREE II Training Tools were developed in collaboration between Dr. Anthony J. Levinson and the Division of e-Learning Innovation, and Dr. Melissa Brouwers, Lisa Durocher, Julie Makarski, and Thomas K. Oliver at McMaster University. This project was supported by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
The AGREE II Training Tools research team would also like to acknowledge the pre-development work of the practice exercise training component undertaken by Kristina Cekan, Ellen Rawski, and Caroline Zwaal of the Capacity Enhancement Program (CEP), McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
