This program is designed to help teams of faculty members and administrators from a university to work together to create a practical plan for the implementation of interprofessional practice and education. Expert faculty will lead discussions and activities to highlight well-published practices from around the world designed to ensure high-quality interprofessional practices. This information will be foundational to team-based activities that will occur throughout the workshop. Sessions will discuss all elements of interprofessional education with a focus on theoretical underpinnings as well as using practical approaches when designing IPE curriculum.
Writing measurable and specific lecture objectives
Description: Objectives are one of the most important assessment tools faculty members can use, however, faculty members may not use them or write them in a way to facilitate assessment. This session will review 2 common mistakes faculty members make when writing objectives.
* All schools attending the workshop will be invited to display a poster about assessment at their institution; more details to follow
Instructional Alignment, Individual Tagging, and the Relationship to Programmatic Assessment
Description: One of the factors that influences the validity of an assessment is aligning test items with objectives. This session will review how to triangulate objectives, test questions and content delivery.
Interpreting exam statistics and using them to vet your current test and to revise your test questions
Description: After students complete a test, faculty members can be confused about what to do with test questions that don’t perform well. In addition, faculty members that assess the same topics each year should refresh at least 30% of their test questions on an annual basis. However, refreshing a test bank can be a daunting experience. This session will review how to use exam statistics to vet exam performance for a current test as well as how to revise test questions for future years.
*Micro-presentations are 3-minute presentations of main points of poster
(revise your objectives and test questions using exam stats, tag test questions using tagging helper – see specific activity slides)
*All schools attending the workshop will be invited to submit a proposal (abstract) for a 20-minute presentation (and 10 minutes of Q&A) about the assessment system at their institution. Three abstracts will be selected by the members of the Organizing Committee for presentation at the workshop; more details to follow.
Using grading tools to deliver feedback
Description: Providing feedback is an essential assessment activity faculty members need to conduct in order to help students enhance their performance and gain confidence and competence. However, not all faculty members are trained on how to deliver goal-oriented feedback. This session will review how to use grading tools to support the use of a 6-step process for delivering feedback to students.
Fitting All of the Pieces Together with Programmatic Assessment
Description: While individual faculty member’s efforts for teaching and assessment are important, programs also need to evaluate how all the individual components fit together to shape what students look like upon graduation. This session will review best practices for programmatic assessment related to the importance of programmatic assessment, quantitative and qualitative data sources for programmatic assessment, and curricular review and mapping.
