Assessment and Evaluation
Assessment Process at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Heading link
The Office of Educational Affairs ensures that medical students:
- have assessments that are developed collaboratively by faculty representing each campus and multiple disciplines;
- have a longitudinal view of their performance on quizzes and final exams so that data can be used as assessments for learning.
- become familiar with the expectations of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) exams through repeated practice in a proctored environment;
- are active co-creators of their learning environment, through participation in program evaluation and course reviews.

Evaluation Process at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Heading link
Students evaluate faculty in multiple ways at UICOM.
In Phase 1, students rate the content and the presentation of content weekly (sample population, not entire student body each week), plus at the end of their block courses.
This evaluation data is provided to faculty with some information retracted if it is not written in a way that is constructive or if it is in some way inflammatory.
