Collaborative Examination Item Review Process in a Team-Taught Course
Recently, Laurel Sampognaro, Clinical Associate Professor, David Caldwell, Director of Professional Affairs, and Adam Pate, Assistant Professor, all from the University of Louisiana Monroe School of Pharmacy, discussed their program’s process for improving exam item quality through in-depth team review in their webinar, “Collaborative Examination Item Review Process in a Team-Taught Course.”
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
1. The first team meeting is crucial in setting the tone for the semester
2. Discuss exam item guidelines and come to a group consensus on usage
3. Keep the mission of student success at the forefront when met with resistance from faculty regarding the process.
The presentation gives insight into the implementation of a collaborative item review process, including the potential barriers and successes involved with collaborative item writing. They also discuss several ideas that could help listeners establish a collaborative process at their respective institutions as well.
“Make the process practical and meaningful for faculty, and the chances of having challenges with your review process will decrease.”
