KGI School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences faculty have identified specific methods to evaluate student learning through his or her mastery of stated outcomes, execution of clinical rotations, and the ability to pass the State and National boards (see Assessment Plan in this Handbook). These assessments will be inclusive of formative, summative, and progression assessments.
Due to the unique nature of longitudinal courses, electives, or experiential rotations, assessment policies may vary from course to course. See individual syllabi or the Preceptor Experiential Education Manual for summative assessment policies and procedures of longitudinal courses, electives, or experiential rotations.
Note: A student who does not pass the course may be allowed remediation after the semester. See Progression Policy for more details.
Extra credit points on an assessment are prohibited.
For assessments written by more than one faculty member, the course coordinator or course director will be designated as the assessment leader.
An individual score of 70% constitutes a passing score.
The length and complexity of the assessment should be such that students can successfully complete the assessment within an allotted time frame. Faculty must clearly communicate the time allotted for the assessment to the students prior to the start of the assessment.
Students will not be permitted to enter the assessment room any later than 10 minutes (internet time) after an assessment has begun. Students that are more than 10 minutes late (after the scheduled start time of the assessment)may forfeit taking the assessment and will only be eligible to take the during the regularly scheduled time, if applicable. If the tardiness is unexcused, the student is only eligible to receive a maximum of score of 70%. If the tardiness is excused, the student will be eligible to receive full credit (up to 100%) on the assessment.
Faculty reserve the right to designate pre-arranged seating and move students during the assessment. Students may ask to be moved at any time prior to, or during the assessment. Granting of this request is at the discretion of the proctor.
Faculty will not answer questions during the assessment. Any clarification or confusion should be documented on the assessment comment sheet. The faculty will take these comments into consideration during the grading process.
Students may obtain temporary supervised access to completed assessments through the course coordinator. Students will be notified as to the time when this will be permitted.
Assessment materials will be accessible to the student until the student graduates from KGI.
