OLVERA LOPEZ, Adriana et al. The challenge of evaluating oral presentations: the use of a rubric in a graduate program in medical education. Investigación educ. médica [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.39, pp.35-42.  Epub Jan 31, 2022. ISSN 2007-5057.


The results of the application of a rubric to assess oral presentations of research projects in a graduate course of medical education are presented.


The instrument assesses verbal and nonverbal abilities, visual aids, content and organization. The evidence of validity of the results was obtained through: principal component factor analysis, reliability by Cronbach’s alpha, and psychometrically with the Rasch Partial Credit model.


The most relevant findings were the identification of three groups of abilities in the presentation: design, internal control, and interaction with the audience. High reliability for the whole instrument, correct operation of the response options and independence between item and ability parameters estimations.


The instrument is useful to assess oral presentations of the graduate students in the medical education program, given its reliability and validity.
