Workshop: Formative Assessment Institute for Excellence in Education Summer Teaching Camp 2013 Edith Gurewitsch Allen, M.D. Mona Mohamed, M.D., Ph.D. Julianna Jung, M.D. 07/25/2013 Presenters have no relevant disclosures or conflicts of interest Objectives differentiate formative from summative assessment
demonstrate techniques for formative assessment of learners develop and solicit formative assessment of: communication skills information literacy strategic planning/critical reasoning attitudes and disposition [professionalism] X Formative assessment for course or program refinement What is Assessment? Establishing clear, measurable expected learning outcomes Ensuring sufficient opportunities to achieve
those outcomes Systematic gathering, analysis and interpretation of evidence to determine extent to which (how well) learning matched expectations Using the resulting information to understand and improve learning General Purpose of Assessment Defines what learners will regard as important Brown 2001 high value placed on marks and grades; ultimately students focus their efforts on assignments and what they will be tested on
Ensures that what is important is learned ASSESSMENTS MUST ALIGN WITH EDUCATIONAL GOALS Planning Our Teaching Traditional Paradigm New Paradigm What topics should we teach?
What do students need to know? How do we test that the topics were learned? What are the criteria for determining sufficiency of learning (what earns an A, B, C, etc)? Teacher-Centered critical understandings,
theories, models; knowledge, skills and attitudes How will we assess their learning? How do we structure the educational experience to ensure that they learn? Learner-Centered Characteristics of Assessment Summative Assessment
Conclusive, Add-on/Post Hoc Midstream, Guiding Retrospective: were goals met? Prospective: are goals being met? Evidence-based Strategies to Promote Lasting Learning Students Learn Most Effectively When They:
Understand goals and characteristics of excellent work Relate new learning to prior experiences Spend significant time studying and practicing, using and applying new knowledge in some way Diverse learning styles are respected Engage in multi-dimensional, real-world tasks, and interact with others Assessments are learning activities in their own right Reflect on what and how they learned, seeing coherence in their learning Universally Valued Learning Goals
Communication Skills Information Literacy Strategic Planning/Problem Solving Professional Attitudes/Dispositions In-Class Techniques Assessing Communication Skills Drawing Exercise Communication Skills ENCODING
DECODING Understand the objective: why are you communicating? Understand the audience: who are they? What do they need to know? Anticipate reactions or potential sources for confusion; plan the message Seek feedback to confirm understanding
Pay attention Receive information without first anticipating the response to be given back Ask questions to confirm or revise understanding In-Class Techniques Information Literacy Headbandz
Information Literacy Recognize the need for information Identify what information is needed Find the information Evaluate information critically for credibility and relevance Use information to answer question/solve problem
Use information legally & ethically In-Class Techniques Strategic Planning/Critical Reasoning Think-Aloud Exercise www.websudoku.com Metacognition Use efficient learning techniques Discuss and evaluate problem-solving strategies used Critically examine the bases for arguments
Correct or revise reasoning Form efficient plans for completion Evaluate effectiveness of decisions/actions In-Class Techniques Assessing Professional Attitudes/Disposition Opinion Polling When a trainee fails to perform a task as expected, it is most often because: A. s/he doesnt value the task or see it as
personally relevant. B. s/he does not understand what is being asked of her/him. C. s/he is overburdened or fails to plan for timely completion. D. s/he lacks required knowledge or skill to complete the task. When an educator deviates from a professional standard, it is most often because: A. s/he opposes or disagrees in general with the standard.
B. s/he is unaware of the standard. C. practical realities make the standard difficult or impossible to follow. D. s/he deems the standard to be inapplicable or inappropriate for the particular situation. How Students Can Contribute to Assessment Suskie, 2009 Identify the purpose of the assessment and ensure that they are relevant and worthwhile Articulate learning goals, their importance and value

attitude/disposition) will you focus on? To what extent (percentage, points)? Which criteria will you use to rate the adequacy of their proposal? What challenges/feedback will you provide to advance their learning beyond the initial effort?
