Abstract

Background: Student assessment is useful to assess knowledge, comprehension, skills and attitudes. Every assessment method possesses its own merits and demerits. The challenge then is to find the most appropriate tool for a specific purpose and the best set of tools for the spectrum of components of interest. The use of a variety of assessment methodologies will thus be required in course evaluation. In this perspective, this study was conducted to explore faculty perspectives on multi-component assessment system in Physiology at Melaka Manipal Medical college (Manipal Camus), India. Method: Faculty feedback regarding the multi-component evaluation system was collected by administering a 9- item questionnaire. Results and conclusion: The faculty members were of the opinion that the assessment system was doing a fairly good job assessing understanding. However, responses were mixed regarding the quality of existing assessment tools and stress level of students as well as faculty members.
