Drafting guidelinesSTRATEGY FOR EXAM DATABASEMake maximum use of available exam information each yearTACTICAL EXAMPLESWe can now generate an exam in final format from the database
This was humongous for us we had previously used Word documents in preparing exam content for 21 specialty areas
It reduced the work for our volunteersMORE TACTICAL EXAMPLESQuestions can be cataloged by subject and a unique ID numberQuestions can be tied to a specific provision in the exam specificationsWe can track who drafted, graded or reviewedWe have authority for the correct answerWe can determine if the question needs to be revisedWe can revise a model answer if neededCONTINUEDWe can track performance on multiple choice and essay questionsWe can determine if a question is invalid and adjust scores accordingly in the databaseWe generate a detailed report on multiple choice performanceWe can easily use different combinations of questions to keep an exam from being too predictableCONTINUEDWe can better quantify the coverage of the exam so that topics were covered in the proper proportion to their importance in the specialty areaWe can determine how examinees performed by topicWe can much more easily track changes to questions and retire items which are no longer valid
