Should we be “quarantining” students for Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs)?

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

Medical schools, due to sheer number of students sitting OSCEs, have to run the same examination simultaneously on multiple sites and at multiple runs (repetitions of the same stations multiple times over the course of the day); there is often a number of runs in the morning and a number of runs in the afternoon. Due to the high stakes of these exams, students and educators are concerned regarding possible disadvantaging of morning students compared to afternoon students due to ‘content leakage’. One way to avoid this perceived disadvantaging is to quarantine students in university premises.
