Conan Macdougall, Tina Brock

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterOtherpeer-review


To the Editor: We read with interest the excellent summary by Mok and Romanelli of the available literature related to the Pharmacy Curricular Outcomes Assessment (PCOA) examination. Their review focuses on the correlations of PCOA scores to other assessments and the potential implications at an individual student level,  while noting the lack of study of PCOA for contributions to curricular evaluation. In
response, we share an example of a feasible methodology for using cohort PCOA scores to evaluate curricular contributions and identify priority areas for targeted intervention.
