The Design of the PTM

From the Writing of Questions to the Realization of the PTM

All items are written by professors of the participating medical faculties. The major part is from CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin.  A database is used for item management and test administration. For each test 200 questions are drawn randomly from this database according to a two-dimensional blueprint that follows both organ systems (e.g. urinary system) as well as traditional medical disciplines (e. g. surgery).

Review committees are in charge of evaluating all items in terms of formal accuracy and content. The committee is constituted by professors of different departments and chaired by students.  After finishing up the review process the test is ready to be carried out.  Subsequently all testing data will be collected and evaluated in order to provide individual results for each student as well as feedback for the faculties and item-authors.
