METHODOLOGY OF ASSESMENT IN BASIC MEDICAL EDUCATION

University of Ljubljana,Slovenia

slide2

Assesment, as all other components of education, should be conducted properly, with expertise,care and respect.

(BMJ 1997; 315:1108-9.)

slide3

Although few of us have received formal training in teaching skills, most undertake the job conscientiously and enthusiastically.

(BMJ 2003, 326:591-4.)

slide4

As several health systems out more emphasis on primary care, this setting will increasingly be used for teaching pre- and post-graduate medical students.

(Fam Pract 2002; 19:183-8.)

slide5

Setting the educational objectives at the beginning of the educational activity is essential for teachers as well as for the students. It gives a clearer idea of what is expected from students; they would best be in written form.

(Habershaw S, Habershaw T, Gibbs G: 53 interesting things to do in your seminars and tutorials.Technical and Educational Services, UK, 1992:25.)

assesment of a medical student or trainee undoubtedly consists of several components
Assesment of a medical student or trainee undoubtedly consists of several components:
  • clinical knowledge
  • performance,
  • skills,
  • attitude,
  • behaviour,
  • ethical principles…
there are some universal ground rules to assesing
There are some universal ground rules to assesing:
  • say some positive and some negative things,
  • be positive and encouraging rather than negative and discouraging,
  • being one`s role model gives the teacher a big responsibility,
  • the students are adult and responsible individuals.
slide8

One has to select a grading method that best promotes learning in his/her environment.

That is, after all, the prime function of assesment.

slide9

There is a secondary function of assesment that we are sometimes unaware of. A unfavourable assesment could jeopardize one`s chance to get a scholarship, a competetive post or promotion…

slide10
Let`s reflect on which characteristics of our teacherswhile assesing were most disturbing to us, when we were students.
  • teacher`s pets
  • forgetfulness
  • divine perfection
slide11
Assesing a student is a complex task for the tutors and we use a Lickert type questionnaire, checking points for some of the components:
  • his clinical knowledge (treating simple infections etc.)
  • his performances (did he always recognize the real cause for the consultation…)
  • his skills (measurning pressure, communicating with patients…)
  • attitude at work
  • behaviour towards patients and other members of the team
  • respecting ethical principles.

All is published in the student`s handbook, which they receive at the beginning of the course.

slide12

All students take a written exam, go through the OSCE stations and conclude with an oral exam. The finalgrade is the synthesis of all the components.

assesing a resident can be even more multilateral it consists of several partial assesments
Assesing a resident can be even more multilateral. It consists of several partial assesments:
  • a visit in his practice,
  • his written report about his practice,
  • the analysis of his prescribing pattern,
  • written part of the evaluation, completed by the visiting teacher,
  • written part of the exam (multiple choice),
  • OSCE stations (practical part),
  • presenting three patients,
  • oral part of the exam.
slide14
We are constantly seeking feedback from students and residents on our methods of assesment and have decided on additional activities:
  • all info considering assesment is available on the internet,
  • constantly evaluating, updating and adding to the pool of multiple choice questions,
  • »talking hours» for students and residents, theit tutors and mentors especially for the exam,
  • staying open for suggestions from students and trainees,
  • analysing the passing rate and average grades.
the most precious three words in education are i don t know even if pronounced by the teacher
The most precious three words in education are »I don´t know,» even if pronounced by the teacher.
slide17

Admitting one`s limitations to the student should not be avoided. On the contrary. students show respect for the teachers who are honest and don`t pretend to be perfect.
