ANT 660 - Database and Assessment Methods for Anatomy Education
Credit Hours: 2
This course deals with the understanding of assessment methods, the synthesis of optimal questions, and their application to educational research, particularly those related to NBME/NBOME board examinations. It also examines typical statistics generated during course implementation and how these measurements measure course effectiveness.
Additionally, this course introduces the student to the analysis of course statistics as presented in summary test assessment reports, item analysis and individual student results - as applied and presented in CANVAS and EXAMSOFT. The goal is to assist students with recognizing which assessment strategies work effectively and how future assessment designs can be optimized.
These statistical variables include the following measurements for exam and question statistics. Exam-level statistical variables: mean, median, standard deviation, and internal consistency reliability. Question-level statistical variables: difficulty indices, discrimination indices, point biserial coefficient, response frequencies. The relationships between these measurements and a set of assessment design case studies will be explored. Finally, each student will assist in the interpretation of these statistics for each examination delivered to the osteopathy medical and graduate program s (both didactic and practical) during their matriculation.
