  1. The in-training examination in obstetrics and gynecology : an attempt to establish a remediation indicator.

    Article - En anglais


    With the use of a university-and community hospital-based faculty, we attempted to determine at what performance level remediation would be recommended.


    The Committee on In-Training Examinations for Residents in Obstetrics and Gynecology Task Force on Standard-Based Scoring sent the 1991 examination to 16 university-and 12 community hospital-based faculty members.

    Given a standardized definition of a « borderline third-year resident, » each faculty scored each item on the examination on whether that hypothetic resident would or would not correctly answer the item.


    The mean expectation of correct responses on the 397-item test was 236 (59%). This was identical to the score obtained if 2 SDs were subtracted from the actual mean for all third-year residents taking the examination.

    University-and community hospital-based faculty members had generally similar expectations of this defined resident.


    Although poor examination results should not be recommended as the sole determinant for promotion, it appears that 2 SDs below the mean may be an appropriate score below which remediation could be recommended. (AM J OBSTET GYNECOL 1995 ; 173 : 946-50.).
