Peer and Self Assessment in the Quest for Evaluative Techniques That Predict Delivery of Quality Care.
Linn, Bernard S.; And Others
Ninety-eight medical students rated themselves and their fellow students using the Physician Performance Rating Scale (PPRS). Two factors were studied: a knowledge factor (judgement, ability) and a relationship factor (appearance, interpersonal relationships, ability to communicate). Reliability between peer and self ratings was significant but low. Students rated themselves generally lower than did their peers, especially in interpersonal skills. Peer ratings were highly significantly related to grade actually attained. The relationship factor was inversely related to grade outcome. (SM)
