Assessment and Learning

By fostering learning through assessment, Assessment & Learning Programs support excellence in medical education and medical student success. We guide educational assessment from design and delivery to results. Our staff and faculty are involved with assessment planning and production, the Standardized Patient Program (SP), and the Professional Development Program for clinical and communication skills.

  • Consult with faculty to support high quality tests of knowledge and skill.
  • Administer assessments: scheduling, proctoring, accommodations, test delivery, grade processing, and reports.
  • Produce performance assessments of clinical and communication skills.
  • Maintain test files and test keys for students to review.
  • Provide a quiet area for students to study test files or meet with faculty.
  • Schedule review of recordings of SP encounters.
