Abstract

This paper presents findings from an empirical analysis conducted on the initial implementation of Goal Oriented Learner Driven-Entrustment (GOLD-E). Specifically, researchers examined the following questions: How do faculty, technicians, and residents/interns integrate GOLD-E into their assessment process? Is GOLD-E user friendly (e.g., form and functionality)? How do faculty, technicians, and residents/interns navigate the shift from evaluator to coach? Researchers incorporated a number of mixed, overlapping methodologies consisting of both qualitative and quantitative survey responses and focus group interactions. The use of these multiple data representations allowed researchers to gather layered and complex data to provide for a fuller understanding of the initial implementation of the GOLD-E tool. The empirical analysis demonstrates the need for revisions in the GOLD-E assessment tool as well as broad systemic changes to drive transformation in the culture of assessment..
