Programmatic Assessment

Curriculum Development


The new assessment model, called programmatic assessment, aligns with the Foundations Curriculum’s approach to learning and shifts the emphasis from assessment of learning to assessment for learning. It takes a holistic approach to assessment that focuses on identifying each student’s proficiency across diverse professional competencies and the identified learning outcomes throughout the Foundations Curriculum. This new evidence-informed assessment framework provides us with a complete picture of a students performance over time – not just a snap shot in time. It involves more frequent lower-stakes assessments, to ensure we are providing students with quality feedback to promote individualized student learning and to better identify and support students in difficulty.
