Medical School Assessment - Assessment of student-generated responses on end-of-course/block evaluations and end-of-year evaluations

Wednesday, September 14, 2022
10:50 AM - 11:40 AM


This workshop is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.


To attend the webinar, log-in as a guest at This is a Blackboard Collaborate Session.


The webinar starts at 10:50 a.m. and we kindly request participants to enter the webinar at least 15 minutes prior to the start time and no later than 10:55 a.m. 


To assess the MD program, The School of Medicine, Greenville collects student-generated responses to questions at the end of each individual course and at the end of each academic year. End of course evaluations ask students to rate their instructors and course and assign numerical ratings of effectiveness along with a narrative about the course. End of year evaluations ask students to rate each course, their preparation in academic disciplines for board exams, and clinical preparation. Students’ responses on their experiences are evaluated by program administrators for improvement at the end of each year. This session will review this process in detail and provide insights on the utility of this process.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
