Letter to the Editor
In lieu of an abstract, here is the letter's first paragraph:
To the Editor. Every course should have published learning outcomes describing what students should be able to do upon successful completion of the course.1 Assessing how well the students have achieved the learning outcomes for the course is very important as this can provide evidence of learning for the student and a measure of the effectiveness of the course. Evidence of learning is important for accreditation purposes and can provide data that can be used to improve the course.2 Documenting student achievement of outcomes can be done in many ways such as having students complete an objective structured clinical evaluation (OSCE), paper, presentation, or project. Other common methods to provide evidence of learning are to give assessments in the form of quizzes and examinations.
