Abstract:

Objective: To determine if the use of Web CT self-assessment questions can enhance student performance on examinations.
Background: The addition of self-assessment questions to a pharmacotherapy module gives students the opportunity to learn by doing and provides feedback regarding retention and understanding of lecture material. Allowing students to access questions outside of class may enhance and reinforce the concepts learned during class, and provides a snapshot of the instructor’s test question format.
Methods: Students enrolled in Cardiovascular/Renal Disorders III (PHA 454) for Spring 2005 and Spring 2006 will be compared. The Spring 2005 students will serve as the control group. Three to four Web CT self assessment questions per learning objective will be developed for use by students enrolled in PHA 454 in Spring 2006 along with an explanation. The learning objectives and examination questions will remain constant. Class performance on 32 examination questions will be analyzed and compared. In addition, the 2006 students will be asked to complete an online satisfaction survey.
Results: 130 students from Spring 2005 completed the 32 examination questions. The overall average on the examination was 70%. Five questions were answered correctly by ≥ 90%, 80-89%, 70-79% of students, respectively. Three questions were answered correctly by 60-69% of students, and eight questions were answered correctly by 50-59% of students. Six questions were missed by > 50% of the class. Once the Spring 2006 students complete their examination in May 2006, data will be analyzed to determine if the use of self-assessment questions improves examination performance.
