Considered Evaluation of Clinical Placements in a New Medical School
Booth, Jerry; Collins, Sarah; Hammond, Anna
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v34 n1 p17-29 Feb 2009
This article suggests that quality assessment in the UK has been largely set apart from learning and teaching and reports on a pilot project at the Hull York Medical School which attempted to integrate students' evaluation of their clinical placements into the curriculum. It outlines the operational demands of this integrated method and compares the student experience of different evaluation methods. It argues that, when properly prepared and considered, evaluation can help students to practise useful skills and suggests that integrating this type of evaluation into the curriculum could be a step towards encouraging academic staff to engage with quality processes.
