An Evaluation of the Use of Continuous Assessment in the Teaching of Physiology.
Tan, C. M.
Higher Education, v23 n3 p255-72 Apr 1992
A study of 30 first-year medical students in a physiology course found that frequent evaluation had a profound negative effect on learning, with students adopting a surface reproductive approach geared to passing exams rather than integrating knowledge. Lectures and curriculum organization failed to affect student use and structure of knowledge. (MSE)
