American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Confidential Results and Reports


Following the assessment, program directors will receive confidential reports with data on the preparedness of their residents in each clinical topic. Data are provided for each individual resident, at the program level, and in aggregate form for comparison with other participating programs nationwide. Results list the topic areas and resident levels of performance based on the percent answered correctly in each area, as well as the overall distribution of scores on the assessment.

Reports are also provided for each resident and include information regarding individual scores. These reports will allow program directors and each resident to recognize specific areas of strengths and to develop learning plans to address focused areas for increasing preparedness.

Learning Plans

A Learning Plan template is included with each individual score report. The template is designed to facilitate conversations between the program director and resident to help define focused learning goals and to identify specific actions for residents to take.
