Article abstract:
ABSTRACT: Background: The teacher’s evaluation is a common method to determine the educational situation of faculty members of most universities. Teacher’s evaluation system can reveal the strengths and weaknesses of the teacher’s educational status and provides the possibility for improvement of the quality of the teaching, and the educational improvement of students. It is believed that the quality of teaching through the basic science courses is one of the important causes affecting exam scores, not only in the semester’s exams, but also in the comprehensive basic science exams of students. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between basic sciences teacher’s assessments and student’s scores of comprehensive basic science exam. Methods: This research was a descriptive- correlation study in which all the basic science’s teachers and medical students of Lorestan University of medical sciences that had passed their comprehensive basic science exam participated. The mean and SD of student’s scores for their comprehensive basic science exam and also the means score of teachers' assessments were determined. Then the standard score for each course was calculated. For this reason, university’s mean score of each course was subtracted from the country’s mean score of each course. Then, the result was divided by the standard deviation of each course. Also to determine the rank position of each course of university in the national scores, the university's rank divided by 100 was calculated. Then, the rank position of each course was divided by the number of the universities participating in the exam and multiplied by 100. The correlation between the teachers' score and student's scores in overall, and in each course was calculated with the spearman test. Findings: The trend of mean score of each course through 5 years of the study was not constant. The qualitative scores analysis, i.e. very good, good, median, weak, very weak had also the same trend. Moreover, the Spearman test indicated that there is no correlation between medical students’s score of comprehensive basic science exam and the total score, and score of teachers of the individual courses. Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, the situation of the medical student’s score of comprehensive basic science exam could be affected by some factors other than their teacher's evaluation scores.
