In an interactive setting, participants will explore whether/how single assessment methods can be combined into programs of assessment within their curriculum. This newer trend in Health Professions Education emphasizes that each assessment is a single data point that can be used for both a learning function and a decision making function for promotion through a program. We will discuss the pros and cons of this change in attitudes towards assessment and the summative assessment culture.
