Abstract

The modified nominal group technique (NGT) is a useful and practical course evaluation tool that complements existing methods such as evaluation forms, surveys, pretests and posttests, focus groups, and interviews. The NGT's unique contribution to the evaluation process is the semi-quantitative, rank-ordered feedback data obtained on learners' perceptions of a course's strengths and weaknesses. In this paper, we demonstrate through a worked example how to use a modified NGT as a course evaluation tool in medical education.
