Peer and Self-Assessment

Peer and Self-Assessment

The Peer and Self-Assessment Program at IUSM involve all students in the first three years of medical school. Research has shown that medical students can provide reliable, valid evaluations of their peers and can be valid predictors of success in residency, providing their assessments are both honest and thoughtful.

Students rate themselves and their peers on professionalism, communication and collegiality; using the 9-point Likert scale supplemented by comments, then generate individualized reports allowing students to see their self-perception compared with the way they’re perceived by peers. Students meet with their mentors to review their reports and explore the difference between self- and external perception.
