UCAN Networks

UCAN is organized in various sub-units called “Assessment Networks”. While each Partner is a direct member of UCAN (and thus profits from all our services), Partners are usually organized in a specific Assessment Network according to their field of education. These Assessment Networks function as thematic working groups.

Assessment Networks organize themselves autonomously and act as a “self-help group”. All major decisions are made by the members of a particular Assessment Network together. Through this, our approach towards cooperation and sharing of resources can be developed to its full potential. 

European Medical Specialist Societies

Assessing the skills of medical specialists can bring many challenges – even more so on European level. UCAN tools help various medical specialist societies to save resources, collaborate between institutions and enhance the quality of their AMS programs.

The Medical Assessment Alliance was founded by medical schools in Heidelberg, Munich and Berlin in 2006. It was the predecessor of UCAN. Now, with its more than 50 faculties and an IMS item stock of more than 100.000 items, the MAA is currently the largest Network within UCAN.

State Chambers of Physicians

In order to further improve their workflow exams, various German State Chambers of Physicians (Landesärztekammern) have started a pilot project in which the doctor’s assistants exams will be conducted with the help of UCAN modules.

Student Progress Test

Progress tests are formative exams that can be used to monitor the longitudinal change in skills and knowledge of students. Furthermore it helps to cgain important insights on the effects of different curricula and how they impact different cohorts. With the help of UCAN tools students from various universities cooperate together to set up a competency-based student progress test.
