Methods in the evaluation of medical students

Methods in the evaluation of medical students

Ugeskrift for Laeger 161(1): 22-26

The achievements of medical students are decisively dependent on the method of evaluation during their education. Frequent testing of these achievements by well-defined (cross-specialized) problems (involving cases) enables the student to quickly correct own knowledge- or skills-deficiencies, while the relevance of the curriculum is further visualized. A differentiated panel of tests evaluates both the students individual study methods and her ability to make clinical inquiry, diagnoses and application of practical skills. An insufficient individual performance graded by known minimal specific standards entails a feedback session with a counsellor who pin-points defects in the student's knowledge and suggests methods for correction. This form of evaluation is expected to be costly, but is a necessity to improve the quality of the graduating medical students.
