The assessment in relation to the learning outcomes is organized during the training. The assessment methods are based on:

For the first, fourth and the last objective learning: Individual work based on practical exercises during the training on cost calculation, cost-effectiveness analysis and calculation of DALY and QALY. After each practical exercise, a few students will be chosen to present their work. This method will be applied over the two weeks so that all students present their individual work. 70% of the overall score.
The presentation will be on different works. There are different types of cost (direct cost, indirect cost, marginal cost, etc.), and different economic evaluation analysis (Cost-Minimization Analysis, Cost-Effectiveness Analysis, Cost-Utility Analysis, Cost-benefit Analysis)

For the second and the third learning objectives: Oral presentation PPT: (Presentation of the health system and the funding situation of the country of origin or a country of the participant’s choice) 30% of the overall score.

RE SIT: Students who did not succeed the assessments will re sit the examination with ENSP e-learning platform one to week later.
