Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate: (1) student academic performance, and (ii) student evaluation of faculty teaching in a pharmacokinetics course taught by three methods of instructional delivery over a three-year period. Student performance is defined as scores on written examinations and student evaluation of faculty teaching involved completion of a standardized evaluation instrument. General linear model analyses were used to determine if differences occurred in grades for the three exams given in each year of the course and where differences occurred, a Bonferroni procedure was used. No difference in student performance could be detected in grades for Exams 1 and 3 over the study period; however, differences were detected for exam 2 between Years 1 and 2 as well as Years 2 and 3. No statistical difference could be demonstrated over the three-year study period for final course grades or for student evaluation scores of faculty teaching performance. The methods of instructional delivery evaluated in this study did not appear to affect students' academic performance or students' assessment of faculty teaching in this pharmacokinetics course.
