Title: CLOSING THE LOOP: THE USE OF A CURRICULAR DATABASE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON STUDENT PERFORMANCE WITHOUT COMPROMISING EXAM SECURITY
Author: Mitchell, Steven; Parkes, Marie
Subject: curricular database, exam security, feedback on student performance
Abstract: At the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, there is ever-increasing recognition that the development of high-quality medical student examinations is a fundamental part of a high-quality educational experience. As growing faculty time is spent in the development of reliable exams, question banks and the reuse of testing items are both becoming more prevalent. Security of these examinations is thus increasingly becoming a priority. However, our faculty also recognizes the importance of student feedback. In past years, we have allowed students directly access to their tests following the examination sessions, but the increasing importance of exam security obviously conflicts with this approach. The authors and course directors are attempting to resolve this dilemma by utilizing a curricular database to provide students with individualized feedback while maintaining exam security.
