When to Use a Comprehensive Final Examination.
Markert, Ronald J.
Journal of Medical Education, v56 n3 p198-99 Mar 1981
The value of comprehensive final examinations in medical school is addressed. It is argued that such testing should be discouraged when it involves repeating earlier content with new or reused test items. It is seen as valuable when it can be used to challenge the student to integrate earlier concepts in more sophisticated tasks. (JMD)
