We are very happy to announce the relaunch of ExamSource, a free question bank platform for students studying the medical sciences. It is based on the crowd-sourcing concept: Questions are submitted by registered users (free to join!) and must be peer-reviewed before entering active circulation. Questions can be flagged, thus re-entering the peer-review pool. Users are able to bookmark questions for later access and review from their account page. Performance statistics are available on the population level as well as for the individual user to identify weak subjects. The question bank has been designed with mobile computing in mind, users are able to sign in from any computer or handheld, web-enabled device to practice for that upcoming exam.
The project has undergone extensive development since its debut and has been put to the test on the two recent MS2 exams for Hematology and Cardiovascular Pathophysiology where we administered more than 700 quizzes. More than 260 accounts have been created so far. Click here to view more statistics about this project.
Interested in helping us with this project? We need students to help with things like:
- Writing & peer-reviewing questions
- Publicizing the project on WSUSOM’s campus
- Publicizing the project to schools around the country
- Recruiting students for all of these purposes!
We are able to offer an educational elective during MS4 for students to write questions for ExamSource. This is a very interview-schedule friendly rotation.
