Dear Standards Committee,

The Educational Trajectory Working Group reviewed the compiled comments from the Standards Committee and has provided recommendations and proposed edits in response. There are two attached documents: one that shows compiled suggestions and recommendations and the revised spec. Please review and provide any comments by next Friday. October 7. Thank you!

Note that the proposed changes reflect  feedback on the Educational Achievement spec from the ABP and NBME. The previous specification did not allow for the exchange of information related to the role of an observer making an assessment (ie attending physician, nurse, peer, etc) or the duration of the observation period for the assessment (one day, 30 days, etc). We've incorporated that feedback into the proposed changes, which are attached to this note. Adding these fields would make integration across systems involved in observational assessment more robust.


Valerie Smothers

Deputy Director
