What is evaluation and why do we do it?  

  • Evaluation involves collecting data about the process and impact of educational experiences on students, faculty, and the institution.  
  • Data is used to support continuous improvement of the educational program and meet standards for accreditation 
  • Multiple sources of data are used  

Different Types of Evaluation Data 

  • Surveys about quality of curriculum components (i.e., Course, Lecturer, Small Group Facilitator) 
  • End of phase surveys (overall impressions of curriculum and specific measures of attitudes and behavior) 
  • Focus groups  
  • Student assessment data 
  • Faculty input  
  • AAMC questionnaires
