About Formative Assessment


The formative assessment is an innovative and personalized approach to learning designed to improve clinical performance. It employs a testing methodology that has been shown to be effective in learner retention, recall and application. But beyond the proven educational merits of testing, the formative assessment appeals to the sense of competition—comparing learner results against their peers. Furthermore, the formative assessment is an effective conduit for continuing education activities as learners proceed through content at their own pace. The platform is comprised of modules aligned to specific learning areas. Within each module, learners complete a pre-assessment, see their individual results, the average score of their peers, and are then directed to a learning road-map that identifies which supplemental education is most relevant to that learner.

Once learners complete the online activities within a module, they conclude by taking a final assessment. At this stage, CME/CE credit is awarded. Additionally, the learner is immediately provided with: rationales and sources supporting the correct answer choices, their individual test results, a comparison of how they scored against their peers, as well as their pre-assessment scores to show mastery of professional practice gaps.
