9.7 Formative Assessment and Feedback


Scope

Any individual, student, faculty member, administrator, staff member, group or   committee involved in pre-clinical courses or clinical clerkships.


Policy Statement

Indiana University Scool of Medicine (IUSM) ensures that each medical student is assessed and provided with formal formative feedback, as determined by the course or clerkship management team, early enough during each required course or clerkship four or more weeks in length to allow sufficient time for remediation. A course or clerkship less than four weeks in length provides alternate means by which a medical student can measure his or her progress in learning. Adherence to this policy is monitored by CCSC.


Reason for Policy

To ensure that medical students receive formative feedback early enough in their courses or clerkships to allow for remediation. 


Approval

Approved by CCSC on 11/29/2016


Procedures

Students will be made aware of the procedures by the course or clerkship management team. Examples of formative feedback include but are not limited to quizzes, practice questions, audience response system, narrative feedback and others.


Definitions

Course/Clerkship Management Team- All IUSM Courses/Clerkships are overseen by a team of faculty across each campus who collectively oversee the educational experience in a given course or clerkship.
