It seems that oral and written examinations are not enough for an effective evaluation of instructions. In order to accomplish an efficient educational evaluation, an evaluation model was designed for educational assessment of modular courses so that, it could assess the most effective factors on education. Methods: After developing the first draft of the proposed model, it was developed and improved using Delphi technique and then implemented in 11 modular educational programs for managers and administrators of selected hospitals and vice chancellors for logistics of medical universities. Finally, it was introduced as the proposed model. Findings: The proposed model included 9 evaluation domain and consisted of 134 factors as follows: daily evaluation of the class by learners (10 factors), daily evaluation of educational and welfare facilities by learners (12 factors), final course evaluation by learners (30 factors), course evaluation by teacher (20 factors), learners' evaluation of the effects of education in practice (7 factors), evaluation of educational resources (6 factors), learners’ evaluation of the content (16 factors), and learners' self evaluation of educational efficiency (13 factors).
