Content VALIDITY-criterion VALIDITY (correlation between mean score of clinical and theoretical courses of midwifery and dops-Each item relationship with dops each skill)-VALIDITY (internal structure), RELIABILITY (internal consistency determination-rater RELIABILITY) was analyzed using the SPSS software.Result: Dops test content VALIDITY index and content VALIDITY ratio were reported over 0.75% and 0.50%, respectively.Dops scores correlated with theoretical, 0.071 (p=0.647) and clinical 0.093 (p=0.548).The dops significantly correlated with the total score of each skill expressing the desired internal VALIDITY (p<0.001). RELIABILITY test was measured using Cronbach's alpha coefficient (0.814). the Minimum and maximum values of the correlation coefficient of interrater RELIABILITY were 0.97 and 0.99, respectivelywhich were significant in all cases (p<0.001).Students’ satisfaction was rated from satisfay to very satisfy with 78.2 percent.Conclusion: According to the results of tha study, dops has suitable VALIDITY and RELIABILITY to use for objective evaluation of onstetrical skills.
