Written Interactive Test
Allows for assessment of clinical reasoning skills, understanding and knowledge of clinical and basic science and application of basic science to clinical problems. test methods such as essays and open-ended interviews are used, providing information about the respondent's perceptions, attitudes, feelings, and experiences. Examples of written objective-type tests are MCQ, PMP, MEQ. Such test should be designed to ensure that they are clinically coherent, containing questions from different disciplines, securing an appropriate discipline balance and ensuring that questions and answers reflect reasonable expectations of students. However, these test methods are often subjective and may contain rater biases. Presently, to enhance their validity and reliability, most of above mentioned methods are computerized with the addition of various audiovisual and holographic inputs (computer-interactive tests).
