Evaluation & Research Exchanges: Lively, Engaging, and Productive

The last few evaluation and research meetings have been intellectually engaging and useful. Drs. Gesundheit and Nevins participated in an animated discussion about how best to visually present the data. The graphic display concerning performance correlates associated with student self-assessment was compelling.
