Welcome to the Medical Education Technology and Evaluation
(MedEDTechEval) Website. We are actively working to make this website
user friendly and a worthwhile resource for you. If you are looking for information on how to fill out evaluations or print your evaluation reports, you will find that here. Evaluation is important to any educational endeavor. Here at UCSD's School of Medicine, the evaluation process provides informative data that is used to help strengthen our teaching and our curriculum. We cannot imagine a more fulfilling endeavor than investing daily energy and resources in the pursuit of educational excellence.
From the American Evaluation Association
Given the diversity of interests and employment settings represented on the Task Force, it is noteworthy that Task Force members reached substantial agreement about the following five principles. The order of these principles does not imply priority among them; priority will vary by situation and evaluator role.
Systematic Inquiry: Evaluators conduct systematic, data-based inquiries about whatever is being evaluated.
Competence: Evaluators provide competent performance to stakeholders.
Integrity / Honesty: Evaluators ensure the honesty and integrity of the entire evaluation process.
Respect for People: Evaluators respect the security, dignity and self-worth of the respondents, program participants, clients, and other stakeholders with whom they interact.
Responsibilities for General and Public Welfare: Evaluators articulate and take into account the diversity of interests and values that may be related to the general and public welfare.
