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