Abstract:

In response to declining student performance and satisfaction with our pharmacy law course, the course was reorganized in 2004 and a "User's Guide” to our state law was developed as the primary text. Rather than the former more traditional organization which moved from the legal system to federal law to state law, the revised schedule and accompanying text were organized according to function, such as "Becoming a Pharmacist," "Establishing a Practice Site," and "Distributing Medications," with state and federal law pertinent to each topic discussed at one time. Analysis of two years of student performance prior to and following the change revealed improvement in student learning. Average course grades were 2.91 and 2.92 for 2002 and 2003, in contrast to 3.46 and 3.26 in 2004 and 2005, using comparable examinations. Student evaluations of the course following the change reversed a declining trend in student satisfaction.
