An end-of-semester course -reporting strategy serves as one component of an overall curriculum evaluation plan. A framework specifying reporting criteria is used to guide the process. Report elements include integration of concepts in clinical, descriptions of active classroom learning strategies, testing data on concept performance, and exam statistics. Grade distribution and standardized testing scores are also reported. The report-out strategy has helped identify curricular strengths and weaknesses, encouraged instructional collaboration among faculty, informed decision-making, and contributed significantly to a successful curriculum transformation. The strategy has supported improved program outcomes in standardized testing scores and licensure pass rates.
