PETRA, Ileana; RAMIREZ, Norma; CORTES, M. Teresa  y  FOUILLOUX-MORALES, Mariana. The teachers' view on their students' performance during class and its association with competences. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2016, vol.19, n.6, pp.291-299. ISSN 2014-9840.

Introduction. Implementation of competency-based teaching at an international level, has aroused the interest of several authors to study how it promotes the development of these skills in the classroom; unfortunately, little has been investigated specifically about what the teacher has to say in this regard. Aim. To know the view point that the faculty members in medicine have on the performance of their students in class that can be associated with the development of the competencies that are specified in the curriculum. Subjects and methods. Eight scales were constructed and validated that would inquire on the specific development of each these skills in students. These instruments were applied to 189 teachers of the first and second year of medicine at a public University in Mexico, showing satisfactory psychometric characteristics. A descriptive and comparative cross-sectional study was conducted. Results. We found that more than 70% of the teachers observed that students carry out activities that account for the development of these competences. Conclusions. Even if this high percentage of teachers who, consciously or unconsciously, apply strategies that are reflected in the development of skills of their students in the classroom, it is necessary to implement a series of actions in the teaching-learning process, including the training and updating of teachers, to promote the development of the competencies referred to in the academic programs of the various subjects.
