SAZ, Pedro et al. Psychometric properties of a teaching evaluation questionnaire for an Academic Psychiatric Area. Educ. méd. [online]. 2007, vol.10, n.2, pp.121-126. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction: In the context of the process to establish the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the implementation of international quality standards in Medical Education is essential; and the improvement of teaching effectiveness is therefore of great importance. Students' rating questionnaires are the teaching evaluation tool in most widespread use. The main objective of this study is to present psychometric properties, such as reliability and validity, of a questionnaire developed for the assessment of subjects in the Psychiatry Department of the Faculty of Medicine in Zaragoza. Methods: Students attending the last two Psychosomatics and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry classes in 2005-2006, were invited to fill out a confidential questionnaire designed by the authors. Test retest reliability, internal consistency and content validity were tested, and an approximation to construct validity was also approached. Results: Cronbach’s a coefficient was 0.865 (good to excellent according to the standard) and test retest kappaW was 0.655 (C.I. 99% .562-.748). Feasibility was appropriate and data about correlation of measures of satisfaction and the outcome of teaching support the construct validity of the questionnaire. Conclusions: The feasibility and reliability of the new scale for medical students evaluation is documented, and preliminary data support its construct validity. It is suggested that the new tool may be useful in deciding about teaching methods in the Area of Psychiatry. Furthermore, its usefulness might be extended to other Biomedical Areas.
