Principles of Assessment in Medical Education

Tejinder Singh and Anshu

Jaypee Brothers; New Delhi: 2012

Pages: 266, Price: Rs. 295/-.

 

Of the many activities that medical teachers are entrusted, nothing is perhaps more important and impactful than assessment. This book covers a broad range of topics from basic principles to more hands-on practical topics. The book is divided into 23 chapters, which are organized in a logical seamless manner. Most chapters contain adequate and easy-to-understand examples. References are appropriate and there is a very exhaustive compilation of online resources on assessment.

This is a book written by medical teachers for medical teachers. It brings contextual relevance, merges theories with practical advices, and keeps the message simple. The writing is lucid with optimum take-home messages. This book is useful to anyone who is involved in assessment in medical education. The book should be an essential reading for faculty development in medical education.
