Abstract:

Objectives: To describe how an audience response system can be used to assess the microbiology knowledge base of first semester P1 students as an integral component of a course on antimicrobial agents. To track outcomes of learning by asking similar questions introduced by the audience response system experience on follow-up exams. Methods: At the first day of class an audience response system was employed to ask a series of multiple choice questions regarding microbiology in preparation for an antimicrobial course in the P1 year. As a follow-up to assess learning outcomes, similar questions were asked on the first exam one month later and follow-up questions were asked again on the cumulative final exam four months later. Results: The average percent of correct answers of eighteen questions asked on the first day of class was 42 +/- 17.85 (n=112). The average percent of correct answers of the same questions asked on the first exam was 97 +/- 2.83 (n=130). The average percent of correct answers of the same questions asked on the cumulative final exam was 82 +/- 17.03 (n=128). Implications: The audience response system was shown to be a valuable tool for the instructor to assess the microbiology knowledge base in P1 students with varying backgrounds in microbiology. It proved useful in establishing a baseline from which outcome learning was assessed on subsequent testing.
