Workshop: Applying a Systematic Process to Enhance Student Assessment: Building Faculty Skills and an Assessment Community of Practice
Time: Saturday, June 8 from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Speakers: Mary Kate Worden – University of Virginia
James Martindale – University of Virginia School of Medicine
Christine Peterson – University of Virginia
Maryellen Gusic – University of Virginia
Additional Cost: $150.00 USDIn this highly interactive workshop, the audience will participate in hands-on exercises that will enhance their skills in creating, reviewing and refining effective assessments using USMLE-style multiple choice questions that assess higher-order cognition. The activities will be organized to demonstrate a systematic process for “just-in-time” faculty development so that participants can adopt/adapt the approach at their home institution to build capacity for enhancing their own assessment programs. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to create an individual action plan that builds on what they have learned from the workshop to improve and augment the assessment programs at their home institutions.
