Abstract: 

Background and purpose: Multiple choice questions are the most frequent test for medical students. It is important to analysis the overall response to individual questions in the test. The aim of this study is to analyse questions of post graduate medical residency tests.
Methods: Final annual local (Hamadan medical school) and national tests given to three Residency groups including 17 Obstetrics and gynecology testees, 7 pediatrics and 12 internal medicine in 2004 were studied. In local tests residents answered to 148, 150 and 144 and in national tests to ISO MCQS. Questions were evaluated regarding cognitive domain level, difficultly index and Discriminative index and finally to evaluate the optimal, proper, acceptable and "must omitted" questions.
Results: Questions of local Obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and internal medicine tests evaluated the "recall" level in 72%, 72% and 51% and in national tests 71%, 35% and 19%, respectively.
Questions with Discriminative indices of 0.7 or more (proper) were 3 and 5% in Obstetrics and gynecology, 3.5% and 1% inpediatrics and 1% in local and national tests. Proper difficulty indices (30-70) were shown in 53% and 54% in Obstetrics and gynecology, 34% and 43% in pediatrics and 40% and 42% in internal medicine. Generally evaluating, "must omitted" questions in local and national tests were 76% in Obstetrics and gynecology, 81% and 79% in pediatrics and 91% and 85% in internal medicine. The most common causes making the questions to be considered "must omitted" in studied tests were negative, zero or less than 0.2 Discriminative indices.
Conclusion: Test analysis of final annual local (Hamadan medical school) and national tests of Obstetrics and gynecology , Pediatrics and internal medicine residency programs in 2004 revealed that most of the questions are planned in "recall" level, harbor improper Discriminative indices, Difficulty indices and generally evaluating are "must omitted".
