In Ed psych terms, each time you recall information in response to a question effectively practices and increases the association of that data to that problem. Meaning, asking students to think of the wrong answer will increase the likelihood of recalling the wrong answer down the line.

Medical staff personnel seems a skewed population. People do absorb knowledge "by osmosis". I've never had training in IT, but have learned a bit by indirect exposure. Medical staff personnel would do the same.

Unfortunately, I have to leave this excellent presentation. Following on from the Royal & Hedgpeth study - I was interested in whether the exam questions were “improved” and whether non-medical “students” re-took the test and how well they did …? i.e was the test-wiseness countered by “better” questions?

That is why UF dropped the GRE as a requirement for applicants

An increasingly common choice, Cynda.

We've known for a while that SATs, GREs, and the like are well associated with test-taking ability, but not very predictive of competency development. In other words, it will tell you how well the potential student should do on paper tests but not how well they'll do in skills demonstrations / OSCEs / Clinics, etc. As the field moves deeper into prioritizing competency assessments....well.

Is a test checking for knowledge of facts ever appropriate? For example, for freshmen students who have not been introduced to clinical examinations and diseases/treatments?
