Effectiveness of pre- and post-test model of learning among MBBS students - An evaluative study

Sheetal Kuldeep Dabade, Kuldeep Jagannath Dabade.

Abstract
Background: Effect of pre- and post-testing states that when the students are given a test for specific content, they remember it better and for longer period of time than the content not tested at all. Tests not only strengthen the memory by retrieving the information but also improve the learning of contents through long-term retention of specific information.

Aims and Objectives: The aims and objectives of this study were to find out effect of pre- and post-test model of learning among medical students.

Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in Gulbarga Institute of Medical Sciences, Kalaburagi during the month of February 2017. The study participants were 1st-year MBBS students of academic year 2016–2017. A total of 147 students were included in the study out of which 91 and 56 were boys and girls, respectively. The pre-test and post-test contained 10 questions and 1 score was given to each correct response.

Results: There was significant improvement (P < 0.0001) in post-test correct responses compared to pre-test correct response among study participants. 35.37% of study participants were moderate performers who were increased to 80.95% in post-test. There was no high performer student in pre-test but in post-test 19.05% students performed at high level.

Conclusion: Introduction of pre- and post-test while taking lecture for particular topic help the students to learn more effectively and remember important aspects in a better way.

Key words: Pre-test; Model of Learning; Correct Responses; Effectiveness
