Keywords:Learning-outcomes, TBL, Logic Model, Assessment, Peer feedback, iRAT, tRAT
Background and Objectives: Team-based learning (TBL) is composed of pre-class self-study, readiness
assessment tests individually (iRAT) followed by readiness assessment tests in the team (tRAT), and peer
feed evaluation. TBL was implemented in the course of General Embryology for the 2nd year medical
students at the Faculty of Medicine, Jazan University (FMJU), KSA, in the Male and Female Sections
through the years 2015-2019. This study aims to analyze this experience in two aspects: whether it was
implemented accurately maintain unifromity, and whether it achieved the planned outcomes.
Method: TBL implementation at FMJU was calibrated against a Logic Model for TBL implementation.
Data was obtained from records of students including the number of students, attendance, exam marks, and
peer feedback. Description of facilities and faculty was also included.
Results: TBL components were applied; multi-disciplinary faculty was involved and an electronic exam
replaced paper exam in iRAT, indicating the possibility of improvement. The student shows a high percentage
of attendance, high marks in the tRAT compared to tRAT and traditional exams, and high opinion about
participation in teamwork.
Conclusion: We concluded that TBL implementation was successful in-process and fulfill the intended
