Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Content validity is a requirement of every evaluation and is achieved when the evaluation content is congruent with the learning objectives and the learning experiences. Congruence between these three pillars of education can be facilitated by blueprinting.

AIMS:

Here we describe an efficient process for creating a blueprint and explain how to use this tool to guide all aspects of course creation and evaluation.

CONCLUSIONS:

A well constructed blueprint is a valuable tool for medical educators. In addition to validating evaluation content, a blueprint can also be used to guide selection of curricular content and learning experiences.
