Abstract: 

Introduction: Trait emotional intelligence (EI) is the selfperception of emotional abilities. It is an important predictor of academic performance. Students’ self-assessment (SSA) of knowledge gained from classroom teaching may help in the identification of deficiencies in knowledge and provide scope for further improvement. We aimed to evaluate the correlation between EI and SSA capability. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional, observational study with 56 first-year medical students recruited as a convenience sample. We used the “ Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire Short Form” to assess Trait EI. For assessment of SSA, we asked the participants to write answers to a set of questions related to the topic of the preceding 1-h lecture and to assess their marks themselves. Three subject experts checked the answer sheets and we took the mean as the expert assessment (EA) marks. The correctness score of prediction was calculated by comparing SSA and EA marks. Pearson correlation coefficient (r) was calculated between EI scores and SSA correctness score. Results: In all sessions, the students underpredicted their marks. SSA correctness score showed a positive correlation with wellbeing (r=0. 33, P=0. 01), self-control (r=0. 57, P<0. 01), emotionality (r=0. 51, P<0. 01), sociability (r=0. 51, P<0. 01), and total score (r=0. 64, P<0. 01) of trait EI. Conclusion: Underprediction of marks in formative assessment is common in 1st-year medical students. Students with higher levels of EI may predict their knowledge gained from classroom better than the students with lower EI. This may be a potential reason for the better academic performance of students with higher EI.

Abstract: 

Introduction: Objective Structured Practical Examination (OSPE) is a comprehensive tool for assessment. We wanted to improve our assessment methods and make it a more competencebased evaluation. Thus this study was designed to compare the effectiveness of Objective Structured Practical Examination with that of Conventional Practical Examination. Methods: This interventional study was carried out in Department of Microbiology at CIMSH, Lucknow over six months from October 2019 till March 2020. One hundred second year MBBS students were enrolled. The students were divided into two groups of fifty for the conventional examination group (controls) and the OSPE group. On the first day, the cases appeared for OSPE while the controls for conventional examination. On the second day, the groups were crossed over. The students appearing for OSPE were assessed by their scores at different stations. Feedback forms with a pre structured questionnaire were given to the students and the examiners after OSPE on both days to record their perceptions. Finally, the students’ scores were tabulated and compared statistically. Microsoft Excel and SPSS were used for data analysis. The data was presented as percentages, mean and standard deviation. Student t test was used and the significance was checked, using P value <0. 05. Results: Overall in OSPE, the students scored higher and the result was statistically significant. The proportion of students in higher marks range was more for OSPE than that for the conventional method. The difference was statistically significant (P<0. 001). Feedback taken from examiners as well as from the students in the form of a structured questionnaire to analyze their perceptions was very encouraging. Conclusions: OSPE is a comprehensive assessment modality for practical evaluation of MBBS students. OSPE proved to be an effective tool that improved the students’ scores in microbiology.
