Residents' level of agreement regarding the COCOS learning modules (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree; * Wilcoxon Signed-rank test)

Statement

Mean Rating ± SD (p value)


The preparation material and instruction for using COCOS was adequate.

4.45 ± .52 (< .001)

The time available during this rotation was adequate to allow use of COCOS on my own time.

4.54 ± .52 (< .001)

COCOS allowed me to learn about continuity of care I would not otherwise have learned.

4.45 ± .69 (< .001)

COCOS provided me with more exposure to endocrinology I would not otherwise have had.

4.27 ± .79 (.003)

COCOS enhanced my self-directed learning.

4.54 ± .69 (< .001)

After this rotation, I plan to use the COCOS cases in endocrinology as a resource.

4.09 ± 1.04 (.010)

COCOS cases in more endocrinology topics would benefit residents' learning during this rotation.

4.54 ± .69 (< .001)

COCOS cases in other medical topics should be used on other rotations.

4.54 ± .52 (< .001)

COCOS increased my interest in endocrinology.

4.09 ± .94 (0.01)

COCOS should be included as a standard component of the endocrinology rotation.

4.36 ± .67 (.003)
