Although, in theory, a test might be devised which sampled the domain so completely that its validity was limited only by the reliability of the measures, this is very unlikely ever to be the.

THE RELIABILITY OF ABFM EXAMINATIONS: IMPLICATIONS FOR TEST-TAKERS. A common theme among family physicians that have repeatedly performed poorly on the ABFM Maintenance of Certification (MC-FP) Examination is the complaint that they received a score that was identical, or almost identical to their score on a previous administration of the exam.

Kappa values were > or for all 28 items related to the symptoms elicited and > or for 72% of the 25 items related to alignment and movement. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: The results suggest that experienced therapist who had trained together were able to agree on the results of examinations and obtain an acceptable level of by: To determine the reliability of the checklists, the correlation between reported scores of the two examiners was separately calculated for each of the 10 stations, which ranged from to The correlation between total student scores was determined by Cited by: 4.

(University of London Press, Pp. 6d.) SIR PHILIP HARTOG, as he relates in a well-known lecture, once asked an experienced friend what it would be safe to assefl of the powers of a student who could just succeed in obtaining pass marks at an examination.

A defining feature of the work is the attention it pays to what it calls the 'nuts and bolts' of external examinations, from question-setting to grading procedures. The reliability of medically related oral certification examinations is critical because pass or fail decisions are made.

Over the past 20 years, research and practice have demonstrated that the reliability of oral examinations is influenced by the structure of the examination and use of the multi-facet model to produce accurate candidate results.

Reliability for Multiple Choice Examinations: There are several ways to calculate the reliability of multiple choice examinations. Each formula means something slightly different with regard to the precision with which candidates are measured.
