For the past 4 years, our school has been using ExamSoft to deliver weekly formative assessments as well as end of the block final exam. While learners have the weekend to complete the formative assessments, final exams are given in class at the same time in two different locations. Each final exam questions are tagged with block specific categories as well as USMLE categories. After the exam, learners are provided with block category performance report. In addition, at the end of Year 1 and Year 2, learners receive a cumulative USMLE category performance report, which helps identify their strengths and weaknesses as they prepare for the STEP 1 exam.
Moving forward, we are planning to develop our own exam module within our learning management system, Entrada. We are currently in the early development stages, but plan to complete it by Summer 2016. Having an all-in-one system will increase efficiency, reduce cost, and eliminate the need for learners having to go to another system to complete assessments. It will significantly reduce our cost of having to support and maintain separate systems. In addition, other Entrada users can have the benefit of delivering assessments to their learners.
