MGH Monthly Education Forum Featuring MGH Institute HPEd and PA Research

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT

MGH Institute faculty Anshul Kumar and Roger Edwards will present "Using Predictive Analytics to Identify At-Risk Learners" at the MGH Monthly Education Forum on Wednesday, September 29, 4:00–5:00 p.m. They will share findings from a predictive analytics algorithm that identified early warning factors for students most at risk of failing high-stakes assessments. They will illustrate how the method enabled the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program to flag students at risk of failing the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) one year before the exam and the steps faculty members took to support them. Join them to discuss the capabilities and limits of this approach and how such machine learning methods can be practically and ethically applied within the context of a health professions education program. Register.
