General Questions

Medical students to take practice test to prepare for exams, and faculty to create course modules and assignments

ExamPrep is based on adaptive technology, is mobile responsive, available offline and has learning planner functionality for students to create a personalised revision plan to prepare for exams.

Personalised learning involves customising the learner experience based on students’ goals, desired outcomes, schedules and performance.

Adaptive learning goes beyond personalisation, driving learners towards mastery of topics. ExamPrep uses item response theory to guide learners through banks of thousands of questions, each levelled with difficulty and aligned with specific learning outcomes and remediation content.

Basic Science ( 2000+MCQ questions),  Medical Finals ( 2000+ MCQ questions) and MRCP Part 2 ( 1000+)

Individual students and medical schools.

ExamPrep is mobile responsive, and can be used offline, synching results once the student logs back in online.

Faculty Questions

There is no number on the limit of faculty users. The institutional subscription is based on the number of students using ExamPrep and which question banks are being used.

Yes. ExamPrep assignment functionality enables you to do both.

Not at present – but this is on our roadmap for development

No – when we spoke to faculty they wanted all students to answer the same questions for assignments.

At present, ExamPrep allows faculty to create their own questions in German and English.

Assignments are only available to students until the due date – and not beyond.

Yes, and results are recorded.

No – students have to enrol on courses using the course pin emailed to them by faculty.

Yes. Grades are easily exported out of the gradebook via CSV file to import into any Learning Management System.

Yes, but only for courses and assignments that faculty has created for a student.

Faculty are able to view student engagement and usage of ExamPrep  – but at an aggregate level across the school.

ExamPrep distributes topics across the time students have until their exam to ensure coverage of each topic. About once a day, the system compares committed study time to tactual study time and makes adjustments. Uncompleted tasks are removed from the plan after 7 days.

Yes. All quizzes are composed of questions adaptively chosen for the student based on their performance history. Every answer to every question on any quiz or exam is captured and used to update the learner’s mastery level.

Mastery is defined by a student’s performance in terms of answering questions correctly or incorrectly

Mastery is recalculated incrementally as students answer questions and complete assessments (quizzes and diagnostic exams). With each additional answer, the system learns more about the students’ current level of mastery.

 Mastery is broken into three levels that correspond to low, medium, and high performance. At any given time, the system uses the learner’s performance history to calculate the probability that the learner is at Level 1, 2, or 3. We can never know precisely and absolutely what the learner’s actual performance level is, so the system calculates the probability that a learner is in each of the three levels. For example, a low-performing student (based on their question answering patterns) is most likely at Level 1. There is a small chance that the learner is actually capable of performing at Level 2 and an even smaller chance that they are capable of performing at Level 3. Given these probabilities, the learner is “awarded” Level 1. As his or her performance improves, the probability that the learner’s underlying ability is low decreases and the probability that it is medium or high increases. Once there is a greater probability that the learner is a medium performer, he or she is awarded Level 2.
