Abstract

Objective structured practical examination (OSPE) a new assessment tool has been implemented in a few medical colleges. This method of assessment was planned to be implemented in our medical college, before which the authors planned to compare the scores obtained by the students by conventional method of examination and OSPE. The marks obtained by the two methods of examination were compared and a feedback was collected from students to study their perspective towards OSPE. There was statistically significant difference in the mean of the scores obtained by conventional method and that of OSPE. The students’ perception about OSPE was good. This study enabled the authors to standardize the pattern of OSPE and implement it.
