Abstract

Background: Pre-test and post-test have been popularly managed in various designs in Medical Education. Tests for basic computer were performed digitally during 2004 to 2007 at Phramongkutklao College of Medicine, Thailand.

 

Objective: To find the effectiveness of the digital pre-tests and post-tests as a tool in computer learning evaluation and course assessment for Preclinical education.

 

Methods: Three contents of multiple choice questions were performed as pre and post-tests by the medical cadets: content I in 2004 created by using the Tool book II Instructor program, content II in 2005 and III in 2006 and 2007 operated by the Moodle program. Content II and III were accessed via intranet. The outcome data were analyzed with descriptive statistics and the two–sample Z test for comparison.

 

Results: Each year study revealed significant higher scores in post-test than in pre-test at p ‹0.05. Both pre-test and post-test average scores in 2007 were significantly higher than in 2006 at p ‹0.05. The largest percentage number of students was conducted yearly in Fair group for pre-test and in Good group for post-test. Conclusions: The students gained computer knowledge after finishing the course. Content II and III tests are satisfied to be used via intranet as an effective tool for the computer learning evaluation and assessment methodology of the course. Simple analysis techniques, evaluation software implementation with automatically checking and paperless score saving are the benefits of this study.
