Students Build Exam Question Pool

Fourth year medical students were asked to construct a multiple choice question bank for use on their curricular exams.  Educators hypothesized that this would promote student communication and study.  One and a half out of four exams were composed of questions that the lecturers picked from the students’ pool. Lower-performing students performed better on the students’ constructed questions, however group study time was not increased.—Lee Ann Schein, Ph.D.
