Evaluation of Elective Performance

Evaluation of Elective Performance

 

 

Authorizing Body:

Curriculum Committee

Author:

Robert Noiva, Ph.D., Lynda Misra, D.O.

Date Issued:

February 19, 2014

Last Update:

March 27, 2014

Scope and Applicability:

All students enrolled in the School of Medicine

Standard Practice Guideline:

In order to receive credit an evaluation form must be submitted for every elective experience.

Rationale:

To ensure that students are evaluated in a manner that is consistent with the School of Medicine’s educational objectives.

Procedures:

Elective Directors will submit an evaluation of the student's performance at the end of each elective experience. Only the grades of PASS, FAIL, and HONORS are available in electives. Grades are assigned based on the Clinical Performance Evaluation for Electives (CPEE) and completion of all requirements of the elective, which may in some cases entail a paper, presentation or other assignment.

CPEE forms are sent to the Elective Clerkship Director(s) by the School of Medicine Director of Records and Registration.

A final grade for the elective will not be posted until the evaluation forms have been returned to the School of Medicine Director of Records and Registration. Students should review their online academic record periodically to ensure that evaluations have been posted.

It is the student’s responsibility to make certain that all Elective Clinical Performance Evaluations have been submitted and received by the School of Medicine Director of Records and Registration. In instances where the CPEE form is not available or appropriate, OUWB will accept an alternative student evaluation of performance form as identified by the department or program sponsoring the elective. If the grade submitted is not consistent with the OUWB grade scale, the translation of grades will be the responsibility of the Associate Dean for Medical Education.
