Azaan Vhora; Ryan L. Davies; Kylie Rice – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2024
Background: Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) are a simulation-based assessment tool used extensively in medical education for evaluating clinical competence. OSCEs are widely regarded as more valid, reliable, and valuable compared to traditional assessment measures, and are now emerging within professional psychology training…

Cristina Casadevante; Miriam Romero; Tatiana Fernández-Marcos; José Manuel Hernández – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2024
Casadevante et al. (Curr Psychol 42: 4272-4285, 2023) used an objective test and found that regulation of response speed was related to better performance in a category learning task. The present study aims at analysing whether the relation between regulation of response speed and learning exists in an associative learning task. We developed ad…

Kearney, Grainne P.; Corman, Michael K.; Johnston, Jennifer L.; Hart, Nigel D.; Gormley, Gerard J. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2023
New public management ideals and standards have become increasingly adhered to in health professions education; this is particularly apparent in high-stakes assessment, as a gateway to practice. Using an Institutional Ethnographic approach, we looked at the work involved in running high-stakes Objective Structured Clinical Exams (OSCEs) throughout…

Jimenez, P. Citlally; Golick, Doug; Couch, Brian A.; Dauer, Jenny M. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Although pollinators play an integral role in human well-being, their continued global decline reflects the need to provide and evaluate general pollinator knowledge to promote their conservation. Enhancing learners' understanding of the complexity inherent in pollination systems within the science classroom may help them make more…

Brabec, Jordan Andrew; Pan, Steven C.; Bjork, Elizabeth Ligon; Bjork, Robert A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2021
Although widely used, the true-false test is often regarded as a superficial or even harmful test, one that lacks the pedagogical efficacy of more substantive tests (e.g., cued-recall or short-answer tests). Such charges, however, lack conclusive evidence and may, in some cases, be false. Across four experiments, we investigated how true-false…

Craig Brown; Mintu Nath; Wendy Watson; Mary Joan Macleod – Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education, 2024
Purpose: The OSCE is regarded as the gold standard of competence assessment in many healthcare programs, however, there are numerous internal and external sources of variation contributing to checklist marks. There is concern amongst organisers that candidates may be unfairly disadvantaged if they follow an "excellent" preceding…

Angelina Lim; Sunanthiny Krishnan; Harjit Singh; Simon Furletti; Mahbub Sarkar; Derek Stewart; Daniel Malone – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2024
Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) and Work Based Assessments (WBAs) are the mainstays of assessing clinical competency in health professions' education. Underpinned by the extrapolation inference in Kane's Validity Framework, the purpose of this study is to determine whether OSCEs translate to real life performance by comparing…

Degirmenci, Salih – Shanlax International Journal of Education, 2022
The aim of this study was to examine prospective science teachers' pedagogical content knowledge in terms of their approach to error. For this purpose, a data collection tool consisting of 5 questions for conceptual understanding of electrical circuits and steps containing correct and incorrect explanations for each question was prepared and…

Ahn, Dorothy; Snedeker, Jesse – Language Learning and Development, 2022
Korean is a classifier language in which bare nouns are not obligatorily number-marked. Children learning other classifier languages like Japanese and Mandarin are late in learning the plural morpheme. In this paper, we present two datasets that suggest that Korean plural marker "-tul" is acquired much earlier, in contrast to what has…

With the wide application of the OSCE in the field of pharmacy, the development of e-assessment in OSCE is a predictable trend. However, the feasibility of its practical application and the acceptance of examiners who are accustomed to using traditional paper-based methods are worthy of being discussed. The e-assessment system (EAS) was…

Jiang, Zhehan; Shi, Dexin; Distefano, Christine – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
The costs of an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) are of concern to health profession educators globally. As OSCEs are usually designed under generalizability theory (G-theory) framework, this article proposes a machine-learning-based approach to optimize the costs, while maintaining the minimum required generalizability…

Roy, Marguerite; Wojcik, Josée; Bartman, Ilona; Smee, Sydney – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2021
In Canada, high stakes objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) administered by the Medical Council of Canada have relied exclusively on physician examiners (PEs) for scoring. Prior research has looked at using SPs to replace PEs. This paper reports on two studies that implement and evaluate a standardized patient (SP) scoring tool to…

Tamara Kastorff; Michael Sailer; Johanna Vejvoda; Florian Schultz-Pernice; Valentin Hartmann; Anna Hertl; Sonja Berger; Karsten Stegmann – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2023
Previous research has focused on self-assessments rather than objective assessments for assessing teachers' technological knowledge (TK). Notwithstanding, empirical studies have failed to show stable relationships between self-assessments and objective assessments. In this study, we investigate the extent to which scenario-based self-assessments…
