Title:Note-Worthy Practice – Standard 15 – Ohio State
Tool/Process Description:
OSCEs and a case based audience response assessment are used to assess achievement of program level outcomes.  OSCEs are conducted at the end of the second and third professional years of a 4 year post baccalaureate PharmD program.  The case based assessment is conducted live in class at the end of year 3 with a faculty moderator who explains the correct and incorrect answers after the students have responded using clickers. These assessments are used to monitor students’ progress in attaining program-level learning outcomes.  Students who do not achieve minimal levels of competence in these assessments are provided with individualized learning plans (remediation) to bring their skills up to the required level.  At the program level – the curriculum committee uses cohort level performance data to make recommendations for improvements to the curriculum. 

Tool/Process Details:

Length of use:4-6 years
Requirements:The OSCEs use standardized patients. The clicker case based assessment uses Microsoft Powerpoint with Turning Technologies Turning Point software.
