Curriculum evaluation is an essential phase of curriculum development. Through evaluation a faculty discovers whether a curriculum is fulfilling its purpose and whether students are actually learning. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe the implementation of a formative evaluation used by faculty members of a baccalaureate nursing program. PAIREDAR, a three phase generic model, was utilised to conduct this formative evaluation. The definition and description of this model are included. The process used by the evaluation team within the framework of the model is described in a step by step fashion. Faculty and student interview question sets and a sample course evaluation worksheet are presented.
