ABSTRACT
After opening of the item of examinations and correct answer, the objection on the answer or item itself was received through internet board from students in medical school. The behavioral change of students and professors was evaluated after this system. A total of 81 examinations was subjected in second semester of year 1999 and in year 2000 in Hallym University, Korea. Out of 5,478 items, 182 became targets of objection(3.4%). Of 182 items, 83 ones were revised according to the students opinion(45.6%). Although the rate of objection increased from 2.4% in 1999 to 4.0% in 2000, the rate of revision decreased from 59.3% in 1999 to 39.8% in 2000. Total revision rate was not significantly different between year 1999, 1.4 % and year 2000, 1.6 % (p=0.7080). This kind of opening of items and answers gave students a chance to discuss on items once again and to learn contents by feedback. Most of students want to maintain this kind of system after examination. It also made professors develop better and more lucid items. This is one of good examples of using internet in the evaluation of medical education.
