This paper describes how the development of a formulary helped students achieve an outcome ability in a nonprescription medicines course. For the nonprescription medicines course, ability-based outcomes were determined that were integrated, developmental and transferable. One outcome was an ability to make justifiable nonprescription medicine recommendations. The formulary assignment provided two and often three opportunities to extensively practice the desired outcome with feedback on performance criteria. The results of student evaluations regarding the usefulness of such an assignment as an effective learning tool are positive.
