Assessment and Evaluation

The Duke School of Medicine Assessment and Evaluation team is the institutional research arm of Duke School of Medicine. Our mission is to provide on-going analysis and research on Duke's medical school curriculum, courses, departments and programs in efforts to improve student learning at Duke.

In addition, we serve as a resource for departments and faculty. Areas of investigation include, but are not limited to:

  • course evaluations,
  • curricular requirements,
  • academic performance,
  • academic advising,
  • program and department level assessment, and
  • assessment of student learning outcomes

The office works collaboratively with other offices and constituencies to address questions raised by students, faculty, and administrators. This collaboration involves development of project goals, measuring instruments (such as on-line surveys and focus groups), statistical analysis, and reporting mechanisms.

Overview

To measure and evaluate student learning and development, Assessment and Evaluation administers several instruments on a regular basis.  These include but are not limited to the following:

Faculty

Our office does not regularly disseminate students’ admissions biodemographic, enrollment, or grade information. If you are developing an assessment plan or project that would be enhanced through the integration of student data, please contact Dr. Deborah Engle  to schedule an appointment to discuss your assessment objectives. Alternatively, if you have an immediate need for student information please consult the School of Medicine’s policy regarding data requests.

Students

Part of our mission is to provide students timely results to assessments.  If you have any questions about the assessment experience, please contact Dr. Deborah Engle.
