Assessing the Student
Completing an Accurate Student Assessment
Hopefully you’ve had a great time teaching our students – now it’s time to let the clerkship director at FIU know how they did by sharing your perspectives on what they can do. There are two kinds of assessments you may be asked to complete: the just in time assessment and ASPC (Assessment of Student Performance in Clinical/Clerkship Setting).
Why is your candid evaluation of our students so important? You’ve been working with the student in the situation that matters the most –the clinical setting. Because you’ve been working directly with the student, you are in a prime position to provide information about the student’s behavior in the clinical setting. While we at FIU know how they do on simulations and course examinations, all of that is only meaningful if it translates into clinical performance. The best objective evaluation you can provide is important to everyone involved in the medical education process - your assessments are vital and an important professional responsibility.
