Educational testing validity and reliability in pharmacy and medical education literature

Objectives. To evaluate and compare the reliability and validity of educational testing reported in pharmacy education journals to medical education literature. Methods. Descriptions of validity evidence sources (content, construct, criterion, and reliability) were extracted from articles that reported educational testing of learners' knowledge, skills, and/or abilities. Using educational testing, the

Doctor Coach: A Deliberate Practice Approach to Teaching and Learning Clinical Skills
