Teaching language



The unit "Academic and clinical evaluation" aims to contribute with knowledge, skills and behavioral attitudes that contribute to the development of evaluation skills in academic and clinical settings.

The topics will be the subject of lectures to deepen the knowledge in terms of evaluation models and techniques. The development of skills in assessment procedures relies on the analysis of technical documents (improvement plans of evaluation reports) in order to outline evaluation plans applied to specific contexts (academic / clinical).

Learning outcomes and competences

At the end of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. Identify the main features of the technical models and assessment procedures in use in academic and clinical settings.
  2. Outline an evaluation plan applied to specific contexts (academic and clinical).
  3. Analyze institutional assessment reports, apply a SWOT analysis and outline a plan for improvement.

Working method



Introduction: models and techniques for assessment.

1- Evaluation in educational context: assessment of student learning; evaluation of the performance of teachers; evaluation of educational/academic materials; evaluation of programs and projects; assessment of the institution and its study cycles.

2- Evaluation in clinical context: the issue of quality of health facilities.

3- Strategic plans for continuous improvement (institutions and services).
