Curriculum Design: The Clinical Reasoning Assessment
Evaluation of Curriculum: The CRA
Evaluation of the CRA has been an important consideration for us at MEDEX because we administer it at four geographically separate campuses. Again, feedback from AET classmates and faculty improved the proposed final program evaluation. My final assignment differs from the evaluation we did of the CRA at MEDEX, but the overall evaluations were gratifying. Students and faculty feel that the CRA is doing a good job of assessing core competencies and student grades appear to be separating students who "meet expectations" compared to those who "exceed expectations".
