SALAS PEREA, Ramón Syr. Is curriculum redesigning without previous curricular assessment scientific?. Educ Med Super [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2902.

An analysis of the theoretical and methodological foundations of curricular assessment was presented, as a process that permitted to scientifically support curriculum development and redesign in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and as a subject for scientific-pedagogical debate by academic faculties at the University of Medical Sciences of Havana. Curriculum assessment is a social activity and cannot be simplified to a technical and behavioral approach, because its determinant base is a socioeconomic one. The evaluation model used was participatory and incorporated all the elements involved in the academic curriculum. Curriculum assessment is divided into four stages: internal assessment, external assessment, impact assessment and overall result. We went into details about each of them. Curriculum assessment must be considered as a process of collaborative action-research, perceived as something natural and proper and necessary for the teaching profession, and as a scientific basis for curricular redesigning or the improvement of any syllabus.

Palabras clave : curriculum assessment; syllabus assessment; curricular design assessment.
