Storytelling with Auntie Cool

Implementing ExamSoft allowed us to offer Script Concordance Testing, which was requested for a course that wanted to pilot a different kind of testing system where the students had to choose their own answer system as the story of the patient progressed as they would in a clinical setting. This allows for partial or full credit for every answer based on the choices the students make. When students receive additional information on the same patient situation in the next question, they may change directions or stay on the same track. It’s a cool concept and puts the student in a true clinical setting. I used ExamSoft to make the concept work with an interactive demonstration.
