Surgeon in scrubsWithin each lesson, students complete an online study that teaches specific information about that unitís accountability criteria. Most studies conclude with an assessment measuring the studentís comprehension of the subject matter.

Next, teachers use lesson plans and suggested activities, such as role-playing, projects, and group activities, from the Instructorís Guide to reinforce the accountability criteria within the health care environment. Rubrics are included to assist teachers in assessing group and individual performances.
