MEI Developing an Assessment Tool



Evaluation and assessment comprise core components of medical education. While evaluation seeks to determine the overall caliber of a learner’s performance or an educational curriculum, assessment is a dynamic, active process that seeks to improve learning. Educational frameworks such as Kirkpatrick’s pyramid for evaluating educational outcomes, and Miller’s pyramid for assessing clinical competence, can guide learners and instructors in creating and optimizing curricula in order to improve learner competence and engagement. This session of the ASH Medical Educators Institute will focus on the principles of evaluation and assessment in medical education, will review the major types of evaluation and assessment tools, and will discuss how these tools may be used to design and optimize educational curricula in hematology.
