  1. New directions for the ophthalmic knowledge assessment program (OKAP) examination.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    The Ophthalmic Knowledge Assessment Program (OKAP) Task Force of the American Academy of Ophthalmology has reviewed the present OKAP examination and addressed the goals of this resident-in-training examination.

    Simultaneously, the American Board of Ophthalmology has been assessing its Written Qualifying Examination (WQE) as a certifying tool.

    Method

    The history of the OKAP examination is chronicled along with a discussion of the goals of this examination as a stimulus for resident education.

    Conclusion

    The new OKAP examination is structured specifically for residents-intraining and is now administered separately from the WQE.

    The OKAP examination is moving in the direction of a criterion referenced examination based on a defined content outline.
