Using a Student Focus Group to Assist a PharmD Program in Identifying Abilities Based Outcomes

1 January 2009


The Pacific University School of Pharmacy (SOP) developed new Abilities Based Outcomes (ABOs) to guide program development and assessment. As part of this collaborative process, which involved faculty, staff and administration, student input was also sought. An Assessment Student Focus Group, in a directed process facilitated by the faculty Assessment Committee chair, developed ABOs that were “meaningful”, “manageable” and “measurable”. Many of these were similar to those developed by the faculty and staff.
