The ACCLAiM Professional Development Series

Systems of Assessment in Health Professions Education

Presented by: Professor John Norcini

WHEN: Friday 2nd June, 12-1pm (AEST)
PASSWORD: 491294

To fulfill the various roles of assessment in the educational enterprise, multiple examinations are used. Explicitly or implicitly, they constitute a system of assessment. Historically, this ‘system’ has been composed exclusively of high stakes individual assessments that have been aggregated to make decisions about individual students. However, increasing interest in supporting and creating learning using assessments that have no stakes, as well as the development of the competencies, milestones, and entrustable professional activities (EPAs), has created complexities that make a reductionist approach less effective.

This talk will offer a description of the roles assessments play in the educational enterprise and why they are aided by the application of systems thinking. The elements of a well functioning system will be detailed as will the factors that support its development. This will be followed by a discussion. Attendees are encouraged to engage with questions.
