Evaluation drives both learning and curriculum development and needs to be given serious attention at the earliest stages of change. Summative evaluation can no longer rely on a single assessment tool but must include measures of skill, knowledge, behavior, and attitude. New assessment tools do not necessarily duplicate each other but assess and evaluate different components of a doctor's performance. Assessment needs to be part of an ongoing evaluation cycle intended to keep the curriculum fresh, educationally sound, and achieving its intended objectives.
