Assessment Timeline

The following timelines present the programmatic assessments conducted on a regular basis. They include assessments being completed by Pharm.D. students, faculty members, preceptors, and administrators. In later years, they will also include graduate students and alumni. A detailed description of the purpose and the individuals responsible for implementation and analyzing and reporting results for each assessment is listed in alphabetical order further down on this same page.

SSS=Student Satisfaction Surveys


AACP Faculty Survey

Purpose: to gather faculty perceptions about Pharm.D. curriculum quality and to compare DYCSoP data from this survey with data from peer institutions

Frequency: every year

Completed by: Faculty Members

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individual: Director of Assessment

AACP Preceptor Survey

Purpose: to gather perceptions about curriculum quality from preceptors who had supervised at least one Pharm.D. student during the last academic year and to compare DYCSoP data from this survey with data from peer institutions

Frequency: every year

Completed by: Preceptors

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individuals: Assistant Dean for Experiential Education, Director of Assessment

E-Portfolios and Student Self-Assessments of Competencies

Purpose: to document and track students' achievement of the CAPE Educational Outcomes and personal and professional development by identifying and working towards their own academic and career goals, selecting artifacts of key learning experiences during the Pharm.D. program, and practicing self-reflection to evaluate their own learning. Also, to track students' self-reported level of competency in each of the CAPE Educational Outcomes over time

Frequency: every semester

Completed by: Pharm.D. Students

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individuals: Assessment Director, Faculty Advisors (administrators, faculty members, and preceptors who provide guidance and feedback to students on a longitudinal basis.)

Focus Groups

Purpose: to collect qualitative data from small groups of students through discussion on various aspects of the School of Pharmacy

Frequency: every year or as needed

Completed by: Pharm.D. Students

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individuals: Director of Assessment

Pharmacy Practice Experience Evaluations-Preceptors (PPEEP)

Purpose: to serve as a mechanism for preceptors to assess students' knowledge, skills, and abilities during pharmacy practice experiences (rotations) and for students to conduct their own self-assessments against the same criteria

Frequency: every rotation

Completed by: Preceptors

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individuals: Director of Experiential Education

Pharmacy Practice Experience Evaluations-Students (PPEES)

Purpose: to serve as a mechanism for students to conduct their own self-assessments of their pharmacy practice experiences (rotations) [Includes Reflections]

Frequency: every rotation

Completed by: Pharm.D. Students

Manager: Assessment Committee

Responsible Individual: Director of Experiential Education

Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs)

Purpose: to assess students' retention of knowledge, skills and attitudes from required coursework at the end of each semester in the Pharm.D. curriculum. The OSCEs are formative (i.e., low-stakes) in nature and therefore serve as diagnostic tools to determine students' strengths and deficiencies in different courses.

Frequency: end of each semester

Completed by: Pharm.D. Students

Manager: Curriculum Committee and Assessment Committee

Responsible Individuals: Chair, Curriculum Committee and Director of Assessment

Peer Evaluations

Purpose: to provide faculty with a structured process for peer assessment of teaching to support faculty development

Frequency: as needed

Completed by: Faculty Members
