How does HealthCorps test the learning outcomes?
Through our end of training assessment we are able to determine if the learning outcomes were initially achieved. This provides us with a baseline of standards for our training staff to utilize when conducting their quarterly check ins (which are standard) with each educator that holds a certificate in HealthCorps Programmatics. Each quarterly check in will dive into individual goals that were set forth during the initial training and will provide insight for improvements and longitudinal achievement in learning outcomes.
