Abstract

The test for integrated courses in the initial stage is one of the important steps in improving medical education at National Taiwan University. The purpose of this study is to analyze and evaluate the results of this test. Only the tests of anatomy and pathology were included, because the same format of multiple choice is used in these two tests. The score distributions, average difficulty and discrimination of the items, and students opinion of these two tests were compared. In general, the students performed well on both anatomy and pathology tests. The average scores for the pathology and anatomy tests were 84.29 and 70.58 respectively, and the distribution of the scores for the pathology test was more skewed than that of the anatomy test.
The results of analyzing difficulty and discrimination showed that the anatomy test was more difficult than pathology test on the average, but the average discrimination of one test did not significantly differ from the other. The results were conforming to the score distributions of the two tests, but the students opinions did not correspond to the difficulty level of the questions. According to the students rating of the tests, the less proportion of the students who took the anatomy test felt the questions were very difficult than that of the students who took the pathology test.
In summary, the results of this study suggested that the results of the test were consistent with its goal. Although there were many defects needed to be improved for the whole test. However, the purpose and intention of the test were affirmative. The most of the students who took the test believe this kind of test is favorable.
