Presented by Maryellen E. Gusic, MD, Professor of Medical Education & Senior Advisor for Educational Affairs Description/Learning Objectives: In this highly interactive session, participants will engage in hands-on exercises to refine their skills in assessment through direct observation of learner performance. Using recordings to prompt application of performance metrics, participants will work in small groups to define how the behaviors being observed map to expectations of performance. Together the audience will practice translating this data into recommendations about the level of supervision a learner needs in future activities.  Participants will also create narrative feedback for learners that highlights information that the learners will need to design their ongoing learning goals.  This session will focus on assessment of learner performance in clinical settings/scenarios.  It will also be of interest to teachers who would like to learn more about the use of EPAs as a framework for teaching and assessment and to those who would like to refine their skills in applying standards for assessment and providing effective feedback to learners.  Following this session, participants will be able to:  discuss the importance of assessment in competency-based education; apply shared expectations for performance in assessment activities; convert data from direct observation of learner performance into a trust decision; and provide rich narrative to engage learners in a reflective dialogue about their performance.
