Published Reviews "The book provides a state-of-the-art guide to competency-based outcomes assessment programs in the health professions. If followed, this guide will help any medical educator in the health professions identify better ways to implement assessment methods and measurement tools. What is also important about this book is that it provides conceptual models and popular approaches to assessment. The authors are practitioners who themselves have clearly struggled with improving and implementing effective measures of performance in the health professions and offer the best evidence from the literature as well as from their experience, resulting in this authoritative, excellent, practical guide to a compendium of assessment methods."
