Describing the development of an outcome assessment method for accreditation, the authors discuss development of criterion definitions and the evaluation of results from a pilot study using student portfolios. The subsequent design of an outcome assessment tool to provide concrete, objective data, the evolution of the evaluation process using this tool, and how the outcome data are currently used for curriculum evaluation are discussed.
