Abstract

Background: Preparing a medical school for institutional review of all aspects of a medical school's programs requires an understanding of the international standards being used and adequate preparation and planning (Mac-Carrick et al. in Med Teach 32 (5):e227, 2010). This series examines each of the nine standards developed by the World Federation for Medical Education (World Federation for Medical Education Basic Medical Education WFME Global Standards for Quality Improvement. WFME Office: University of Copenhagen, Denmark, 2003) with practical advice on their use in both self-review and independent accreditation processes. Conclusion: The WFME Standard 3 (Assessment of Students) examines in detail the manner in which student learning is assessed. Evidence of alignment between stated learning outcomes, methods of delivery and assessment is critical. Assessment methods should be regularly evaluated to ensure reliability and validity. Investment in faculty development will ensure necessary technical expertise which is maintained within the school. © Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland 2011.
