Course-Based Assessment: Implementing Outcome Assessment in Medical Education.
Stone, Sarah L.; Qualters, Donna M.
Academic Medicine, v73 n4 p397-401 Apr 1998
Six principles of effective outcomes assessment in medical education are presented, discussed, and illustrated in assessing a preclinical course integrating basic science, social science, and clinical skills. It is argued that courses and programs for medical students and residents should use course-based assessment to ensure that medical trainees acquire the skills and attitudes needed to practice medicine.
