SILVA, Roseli Ferreira da; DEMARZO, Marcelo Marcos Piva; MASCARENHAS, Sílvia Helena Zem  and  PEREIRA, Sissi Marília dos Santos Forghieri. Program evaluation: the experience at the UFSCar School of Medicine. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.3, pp.446-451. ISSN 0100-5502.

This article reports on the experience by the Program Evaluation Group established by the UFSCar School of Medicine, where evaluation is considered an on-going process and an integral part of the teaching-learning process. The group aims to monitor the course implementation process, highlighting the gains and difficulties, in order to implement measures to improve the curriculum's processes, products, and results. Evaluation thus becomes a powerful academic management tool. In this case, the program evaluation consists mainly of systematic and systematized evaluation of the academic departments and the course faculty and preceptors' performance. All the instruments applied to students, faculty, and preceptors are analyzed by the group, which produces evaluation reports and in some cases evaluation studies based on methodological triangulation, recommending linkage between multiple perspectives, information sources, and methods.

Keywords : Evaluation; Course evaluation; Academic management.
