Subject: assessment
Date: 2009-06-05

Report by Ben Eisen writing in Inside Higher Education on developements in med school assessment.  The article quotes Carol Aschenbrener, Executive Vice President at the Association of American Medical Colleges, describing their recent paper.  "The report is trying to shift people away from focusing on courses and more on what to do with scientific information — what you want the entering student to be able to do. One can arrive at competencies in many ways through interdisciplinary approaches."
