Collaborating for Quality: Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy’s Assessment System

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

An effective program assessment system: a) is mission driven; b) aligns with strategic planning initiatives; c) is precisely, comprehensively, parsimoniously, and contextually designed; d) respects the key quality criteria for assessment, and; e) results in continual improvement of performances and outcomes. The Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy has recently redesigned its assessment system to meet these criteria. Undertaken collaboratively, the design process gave rise to two critical, positive outcomes that exceeded expectations: 1) The faculty developed consensus about our most important values – the quality criteria; 2) A table of measures (Characteristics or aspects of criterion measured; Measurement tools being used; Benchmarks; Accountability) for each quality area was developed. Quality areas were often, but not always, aligned with an ACPE standard. For example we evaluate research, graduate and other programs in addition to the Pharm.D. program. The system is enabling us to rationalize, consolidate and cull our current measurement instruments. Continuous improvement is facilitated by distributed (as opposed to central) assignment of accountability to vested stakeholders.
