Student’s perception of objective structured practical examination versus traditional practical examinations for hematology physiology practicals

Revathi M.

Abstract
Background: Objective Structured Practical Examination (OSPE) is more objective, reliable, valid method for formative and summative assessment and minimizes subjective bias. The Traditional Practical Examination (TPE) relays on the global competencies and performance of the students. OSPE assesses the shows how aspects in Miller’s pyramid of competence.

Aims and Objectives: This study aims to introduce the OSPE for practical hematology in physiology for the first MBBS students and to analyze the first MBBS student’s perception of OSPE assessment for physiology hematology practical’s.

Materials and Methods: All the first MBBS 150 students of Meenakshi Medical College Hospital and Research Institute, Kanchipuram, were included in this study. OSPE was conducted for the students after training them about OSPE. The feedback of the OSPE examination was received from the students from a standard questionnaire.

Results: Fifty-nine students scored high who had >75%, 48 scored between 65% and 75%, 49 students scored between 50% and 65%, and four students were <50%. About 80% of the students felt OSPE improved their learning and helped in identifying the weakness in the skills performed. About 75% of the students perceived that the OSPE examination was unbiased and easy to score and have a better content relevant to the topic.

Conclusion: The students showed positive perception toward OSPE than TPE in hematology practical’s as OSPE was fair, unbiased, and easy to score which was well accepted by the students.

Key words: Objective Structured Practical Examination; Hematology Practical’s; Traditional Practical Examination; Physiology
