Committee on Evaluation

Committee on Evaluation and Student Assessment (CPESA)

In 1997, the Committee on Evaluation was created and charged by the Curriculum Committee to design and implement a comprehensive evaluation system that included:

* a means to more effectively evaluate students’ competencies and for students to have frequent, specific feedback about their proficiency of mastering the knowledge, behavior and skills required for graduation
* a means to evaluate courses and clerkships that provide the directors of courses/clerkships feedback as to strengths and concerns, and integration with the comprehensive curriculum plan
* a means to evaluate the teaching and provide teaching faculty timely feedback about their teaching effectiveness a means to evaluate the overall medical curriculum

Accordingly, the Committee on Evaluation crafted four respective evaluation schemes that were implemented July 1, 1999. The schemes are:

* Evaluation of Courses/Clerkships
* Evaluation of Faculty Instruction
* Evaluation of the Medical Curriculum
* Evaluation of Student Achievement

These evaluative formats are based upon the concepts presented in the document, “University of Florida College of Medicine Curriculum Renewal Plan, B. An Evaluation System: Evaluation of Student Achievement, Faculty Instruction, Courses and Clerkships” approved by the Curriculum Committee in June 1997.
