Current Commentary

OBJECTIVES: To provide a tool for evaluating evaluation forms.

METHODS: 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.

RESULTS: 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.

CONCLUSIONS: 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.
