How can I create valid evaluation forms for my program?

 

When you evaluate resident performance, the goal is to get accurate information no matter who is doing the rating. When creating forms, keep in mind the following tips:

  • Evaluate one behavior at a time.
  • Avoid judgmental terms (i.e. use "never, sometimes, always" rather than "poor, fair, good")
  • Balance the scale (the number of positive and negative responses should be equal)
