Utillizing the Thai version of dbase III, a program for items analysis was developd in the computer unit of the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabillitation Medicine KhonKaen University, for the purpose of
- grading of medical students
- standardization of the examination items
The program was used to analyse the items given to medical students in the 4th and 6th year standing for their final examination in 1986-1987 and found to be effective: The well –standardized items could be identified and stored in the examination bank while those less-standardized could be separated for later improvement. These could be accomplished within a day for each class , much more effective than previously.
