Recently, Melinda E. Lull and Jennifer L. Mathews, both Associate Professors of Pharmaceutical Sciences for Wegmans School of Pharmacy at St. John Fisher College, discussed their program’s faculty training process for producing consistent, high-quality assessments designed to ensure that students receive exemplary education in their webinar, “Assessment Consistency: Is Everyone on the Same Page?”
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
- Exam consistency is important because it contributes to exam quality.
- A good assessment involves the clear development of key learning outcomes.
- Once you have created high-quality questions, format consistency becomes equally as important.
The presentation gives insight into the process of creating consensus and guidelines for creating and launching exams. They also discuss how to use faculty-development workshops to provide the foundation of writing quality exams, as well as how to effectively use the peer-review process.
“We want to make sure that every exam is high quality and as consistent as possible in every stage, from creation to exam report delivery.”
