Tag, You're It! A Methodology to Tag Items in Exams for Student Assessment

Tuesday, February 14 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Grand Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: ELI
This presentation will outline a new methodology, developed and published by the Ohio State School of Medicine, to "tag" items in exams. The ability to tag questions within an exam enables schools to track and measure longitudinally how their students are performing at an individual and class level by specific subject or competency area. As a result, programs are able to gauge how well their curriculum is preparing students and provide timely and specific feedback to improve and streamline the remediation process. Finally, programs using this methodology are able to measure whether they are meeting their learning objectives and generate detailed reports for accreditation.
