To provide a tool for evaluating evaluation forms.
A new form has been developed and tested on itself and a sample of evaluation forms obtained from the graduate medical education offices of several local universities. Additional forms from hospital administration were also subjected to analysis.
The new form performed well when applied to itself. The form performed equally well when applied to the other (subject) forms, although their scores were embarrassingly poor.
A new form for evaluating evaluation forms is needed, useful, and now available.
A new and questionably useful form is introduced for evaluating evaluation forms.
