This poster will describe the use of an electronic portfolio assessment system to measure behavioral competencies in medical students at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Our system is designed to measure behavioral competencies such as communication, professionalism, and teamwork by utilizing multiple assessments from a wide range of contexts. In particular, we are interested in detecting patterns in behavior across multiple courses and phases of our curriculum. However, this system also collects a large amount of data, which can be unwieldy for our faculty committee to review. Our visual presentation will focus on how the electronic portfolio has helped us to organize and sort our assessment data in a variety of ways so that both students and faculty can review feedback and measure progress. Effective practices include the ability to map our assessments to behavioral competency domains and display the sorted results via a performance dashboard. We have also developed dynamically updated reports for each student organized by feedback type (rating vs. narrative comment) and course or clerkship. Our poster will also describe a future redesign of our portfolio system and how we hope to leverage new technologies to increase efficiency.
