Assessment activities in higher education are expanding from global institution-wide activities to include specific academic and student service program assessment as a means of improving programs. The assessment movement gained national impetus in the mid 1980s and has continued to expand due to the efforts of assessment experts, institutional and discipline accrediting agencies, professional associations, resource providers, and interested faculty and administrators. The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) has provided leadership and guidance for program assessment and student assessment in pharmacy education through the AACP CAPE Educational Outcomes document, CAPE Handbook on Outcomes Assessment (1995), Background Papers from the Commission to Implement Change in Pharmaceutical Education (1990-1992), and numerous presentations at AACP Annual Meetings and the AACP Institute. The American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE) has also provided leadership and guidance for program assessment through the ACPE Accreditation Standards and Guidelines.[4-7] Colleges and schools of pharmacy have developed or are developing Pharm.D. program assessment plans and specific assessment methods. A guide and list of resources and examples of assessment plans, methods and tools would be useful to enhance program assessment at colleges and schools of pharmacy.
