Assessment Writing

  • In this course, we will discuss some general principles of assessment, and focus on writing multiple choice questions (MCQs) and objective standardised clinical examinations (OSCEs). We will then finish by touching on standard setting for MCQs and OSCES, that is, on how the pass mark for an assessment is determined.
