1 Review

Assessment in Health Professions Education provides comprehensive guidance for persons engaged in the teaching and testing of the health professions – medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy and allied fields. Part I of the book provides a user-friendly introduction to assessment fundamentals and their theoretical underpinnings; Part II describes specific assessment methods used in the health professions, with a focus on best practices, assessment challenges, and practical guidelines for the effective implementation of successful assessment programs.

Key features:

  • Comprehensive – the first text to provide broad, single-source coverage of all aspects of assessment in the health professions.
  • Accessible – while scholarly and evidence-based, the book is geared towards health professions educators who are not measurement specialists.
  • Thematic – assessment validity is an organizing theme and provides a conceptual framework throughout the book.

It is very delightfull to read this book.Initialy I could not get the real idea of the first chapter.but later the writing style of language has made me to read through.first chapter has made clear that how a student aquires the knowledge, how to assess his aquisition by the Millers' piramid and on blooms' taxonomy.
I FEEL THAT ASSESSMENT OF A STUDENT IS THE EXAMINATION OF A TEACHER/ASSESSER.
