Evaluation of a new concept-based curriculum should be an ongoing process. Student retention, success, and ultimately, NCLEX® exam pass rates will
quantifiably demonstrate the effectiveness of the transition to a concept-based curriculum.
Elsevier has a number of testing options available to help evaluate the success of your institution's concept-based curriculum.
Beyond the quantitative evaluations that Elsevier testing options can provide, administrators should also incorporate qualitative studies in determining the success
of their new curriculum. Faculty members and students should be surveyed at different points throughout the curriculum to obtain further insights into the curriculum's success.
Employer and clinical site surveys are another helpful evaluative tool that can monitor the curriculum's success beyond the classroom.
Ultimately, administrators should employ various methods of evaluating the success of a concept-based curriculum. Once data is collected, administrators should continue
to make modifications to ensure student learning outcomes are continually improving.
