Grading and Evaluation


Components of grade



Percentage of grade


At the end of the two-week rotation, all students will take a computer-based test of 51 questions.  Test material will be taken from the group and individual sessions and will be extrapolated from the list of course goals and objectives. 




Complete both the Anesthesiology and Emergency Medicine Passports. You will likely not complete the entire Passport. Do your best to seek out skills and patient encounters. 




Medical students must participate in a Student Case Report project that will be presented and graded on Friday of their second week.  The grade will be based on the following:

Was a clinical question asked?

Was a clinical question answered?

Did the student put sufficient effort into project? 




Grades will be based on faculty evaluations.

You will be required to complete a total of six evaluations:

  • one for the Anesthesiology week
  • one for the Emergency Medicine week
  • two for Anesthesiology staff
  • two for Emergency Medicine staff 

All end-of-course evaluations are due within two weeks of course completion. 

Drs. Shilling and Sudhir will evaluate you. 




Students must participate in all individual and group sessions.  Absences require legitimate excuses.  





If a student does not feel that a given evaluation or the final grade accurately reflects their performance on the clerkship, the student should first talk with the course director about these concerns. The student will be asked to write a letter to the course director, after which the specific questions or problem areas will be reviewed. This may include asking attendings or residents to re-evaluate a student, or soliciting additional evaluations from other faculty or housestaff. Further appeals may be made to the Pediatric Education Council or the Dean of Student Affairs.
