Are there evaluation requirements for ABPath SAM activities?

As a part of their collaboration with ACCME, the ABPath has expanded the acceptable types of assessments for SAMs. SAM activities are no longer limited to tests or quizzes as their evaluation mechanism. Providers are still required to ensure that the evaluation is relevant to the activity content and accurately demonstrates that the learner has engaged with that content. The evaluation must also include a passing standard and feedback to the learner. Learners must meet the passing standard in order to earn SAM credit.

If providers choose to use a test or quiz, it must comply with the requirements in Appendix B of the ABPath program guide. Examples of other Evaluation methods can also be found in Appendix A.
