AGUILAR NAVARRO, Hilda Juanita; CONTRERAS MONTES DE OCA, María Patricia  and  MENDEZ BERRUETA, Héctor. Actitud de alumnos de Medicina hacia la evaluación formativa. Sinéctica [online]. 2015, n.44, pp.1-12. ISSN 2007-7033.

With the tool blinded patient encounters, a new form of assessment of clinical competence was implemented in medical students. Formative assessment t has the characteristics of the use of feedback, also has the indication that the students not know any patient data. The aim was to know the attitude developed. Qualitative phenomenological research was used. The instruments were semi-structured interviews, documents and field logbook. Triangulation of data from instruments and empirical evidence was performed. Validation was conducted together by the member checking and consultant's audit. The attitude can be considered positive, because they regard the tool (BPE) as a total and complete assessment to be performed with a real patient, which serves as guide to the weaknesses of your clinical competence. It generated nervousness at the beginning. Search intent information was promoted, without evidence, because only one behavior improvement was observed in specific aspects of clinical competence that had previously failed.

Keywords : student attitudes; medical education; competence; formative assessment; qualitative research.
