  1. Evaluation of different MCQ-scoring-system in a medical school.

    Article - En anglais

    The MCQ scores of final medical students in surgery for the years 1990 and 1991 were analysed.

    The score for a correct answer was plus 1 mark in both years.

    The penalty for incorrect answer for the year 1990 was minus-1 mark as had been practised during the previous 15 years.

    The penalty for the year 1991 was minus 1/4 for an incorrect answer.

    This low penalty of minus 1/4 resulted in an inflated MCQ score as compared with the essay questions and both clinical and oral examination results.

    The low score recorded during the year 1990 is a genuine reflection of inadequate performance rather than bad evaluation since the MCQ bank is the same and the panel of examiners has not changed.
