Educational Measurement Workshop: A Sweet Approach to Understanding the Basic Principles of Educational Measurement

:  
Date Posted:

Date Reviewed/Updated for Clinical Accuracy:

Product Information
Abstract: 

Increasingly, medical educators are expected to design, implement, and analyze the results of an array of learner assessment strategies ranging from multiple choice examinations to human (e.g., standardized patients) and mechanical simulations. However, many of our faculty have limited training focused on the core principles of educational measurement and learner assessment.

These principles, including reliability, validity, and sources of errors (e.g., rater biases, administration) are presented in a 2.5-3 hour workshop using chocolate as a central focus. During this memorable and engaging workshop, participants identify key attributes of excellence (in chocolate), develop rating scales, train raters, rate the chocolates, and then report their scores to examine rater consistency. At the conclusion of the workshop, the basic principles of educational measurement and the methods to control common sources of error (e.g., instrumentation) are addressed and discussed in the context of common learner assessment methods.

Educational objectives: 

The learner will be able to:

  1. Define basic terminology associated with educational measurement and learner assessment including reliability, validity, inter-rater agreement, normative, and criterion based assessment.
  2. Identify common sources of measurement errors that threaten the integrity of learner assessment measures.
  3. Identify strategies to correct/control for errors with particular emphasis on those attributable to raters and instrumentation.
  4. Apply measurement principles to address medical education related learner assessment issues.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 
  1. Instructor needs strong background and medical education-related working knowledge of the basic principles of educational measurement and associated methods to control common sources of error.
  2. Ability to draw on examples from a range of specialties/disciplines and training levels including facility with
    • ACGME Competencies, Assessment Requirements for Accreditation and Toolkit;
    • USMLE and credentialing boards (e.g., ABIM).
  3. Teaching Skills for Skilled/experienced large group instructor:
    • Ability to instruct using Microsoft Office PowerPoint software.
    • Ability to interact and facilitate large discussion with learners across specialties.
    • Ability to promote small group interaction, monitor time on task, and direct tasks as needed to stay within schedule.
    • Prepare materials and room or be flexible to use established room set-up.

We use a common, universally familiar subject (chocolate) as the target of performance assessment so participants focus on the instrumentation issues. Since multiple sources of variation and error (e.g., inter-rater taste preferences, rater fatigue) exist even with as simple a construct as chocolate, we provide concrete examples of these as threats to assessment validity. Because the assessment is relatively brief, we are able to quickly summarize the data and interpret simple test statistics (e.g., inter-rater reliability) on the spot. You could have a staff person help with collection of rating forms and quick summary of data while discussion of common errors ensues.

The presenter must continually speak to the relevance and transfer of the material to medical student education. If the participants are not well known to the instructor, a brief introduction of their roles and assessment responsibilities might help make the lessons personal. Variability in chocolates will serve as sources of variation in the discussion - some anticipated, some not (like students). While participants are sampling the chocolates, instructors should identify sources of variability by the three of the four sources of error used to ground the workshop: instrumentation (clarify of rating scales); raters (fatigue, bias' towards a particular chocolate, contamination with another food/drink source); administration (clarity of instructions, order of tasting, chocolate sample size) and any other sources that will introduce error in the measurement. These observations are then used during the discussion (order, size, style of sampling, drinks).

To help learners transfer this information to their faculty roles, find relevant examples of assessment tools from one's own institution. We use a detailed Likert scale rating form in our clinical clerkship that serves as an example and have participants reflect on possible applications of this material in their own jobs.

The Educator's Portfolio & Curriculum Vitae Workshop & Resource Guide

Product Information
Abstract: 

Faculty seeking to advance in their academic careers with an emphasis on education often struggle with how to document their educational contributions in traditional academic curriculum vitas (CVs) and Educator's Portfolios (EPs). Submission contains annotated PowerPoint slides, worksheets for the Developing Your Educator's Portfolio, an Instructor's Guide, and a resource guide presenting samples of successful educator-focused CVs and associated EPs demonstrating "effective presentation" strategies consistent with Glassick's criteria for scholarship. 

Educational objectives: 

The learner will be able to:

  1. Identify types of educator-related activities (e.g. curriculum development, teaching, administration) and associated evidence consistent with the quantity, quality and engagement in educational community needed for academic promotion.
  2. Examine the format of the standard CV and a CV adapted specifically for educators and actual examples to determine how to effectively incorporate education into a traditional CV format.
  3. Recognize that effective presentation of educator activities and associated audiences draws on one's teaching skills to select presentation formats that match objectives and intended audience and can be included in the Educator's Portfolio.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Consistent with the findings from the AAMC Consensus Conference on Educational Scholarship, this session highlights key features associated with effective documentation and presentation of educators' contributions for academic promotion. Examples are provided to illustrate how to effectively document quantity and quality of educational activities and engagement with community of educators. The resource guide includes a standard academic CV format, an expanded CV format used by educators, seven paired promotion CVs/EPs and additional samples of EPs to highlight selected topics (e.g., grants, community-academic partnerships). The examples allow users to identify someone "who looks like them", thereby teaching how to document educational activities through role modeling/examples. While the CV/EP examples are timeless, updated references are provided in an accompanying instructor's guide.

As indicated in the Instructor's Guide, presenters of the workshop, Teaching Others About Your Excellence as an Educator, should have a strong working knowledge of educational scholarship, understand local promotion and tenure processes, and be familiar with peer-reviewed repositories. The resource guide of CV and EP templates and actual samples is self-explanatory.
