The Application of Exam Question Categorization for Student Remediation and Self-Directed Learning
Presented by: Kathy Day, Senior Instructional Designer, Thomas Jefferson University
Quite often, students are left with little information regarding their performance post-exam. By employing an embedded-assessment strategy and categorizing each exam item to course and programmatic outcomes, Thomas Jefferson University is able to provide its nursing students with specific information on what topics or objectives they should focus on for better self-directed learning and remediation. This granular student performance data is also being used to help with curriculum mapping, as well as to help demonstrate student competency and programmatic achievement for accreditation purposes.
Utilizing Electronic Exam System with iPad for Student Preparedness on Licensure Exams
As health sciences programs prepare their students to be successful on National Board licensure exam, many forget that quite often the simple concept of being comfortable in the testing environment can have a huge impact on student performance.
The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine has created a NBDE Part II mock exam process that replicates the licensure exam experience for their dental students. The experience not only familiarizes students with the exam environment, but also with computer-based testing and the specific question types they will face on their assessment.
This process brings together all facets of the dental education program together—faculty, Office of Curriculum Affairs, Learning Technology Team, and IT to make sure their students have the best possible chances at being successful on their board exam.
