9.6 Setting Standards of Achievement
Students enrolled in phase 2 of the curriculum at Indiana University School of Medicine and faculty, residents, and other personnel working with these students in the School of Medicine.
IUSM, by way of the Curriculum Council Steering Committee, provides oversight and management to ensure all educational experiences in phase 2 of the curriculum have comparability of assessment at all educational sites.
The following schema will be used to determine clerkship outcomes for phase 2 of the curriculum:
25% Standardized Examination
5% Professionalism and Timely Completion of Assignments
10-30% Graded/Verified Components
40-60% Preceptor Evaluation
Please note that due to differences in patient interactions, this global schema will NOT apply to the Anesthesia clerkship.
Reason for Policy
To define the grading system used by IUSM to evaluate students in phase 2 of the competency-based curriculum and to ensure consistency and fairness of assessment.
Approved by Curriculum Council Steering Committee 06/02/2017.
1. If a student fails to achieve a passing score on the standardized examination, he/she will be given an ID-MK and will be allowed to retake the examination, provided he/she is satisfactory in all other competencies.
2. Students who achieve a passing score on the retake of the standardized examination will be considered to have completed remediation with no further action required.
3. If the student fails the retake of the standardized examination, he/she will fail the clerkship and will be referred to the Student Promotions Committee.
Refer to the Grade Policy for Courses, Clerkships, and Electives in the Clinical Years for additional information.
Note: Minimum acceptable scores vary according to version of exam and discipline as per NBME or standardized exam score guidelines.
