(2) laser videodisk pictorials to assess identification and interpretation of diagnostic procedures;
(3) written clinical vignettes to assess diagnosis and management skills;
and (4) assessment of spoken English.
A uniform method of operating the test centers and of training the standardized patients was developed.
