This practical guide provides a simple, useful reference to commonly raised questions about medical student assessment.

The first part of the book provides succinct information on the general aspects of assessment such as purpose and principles of assessment; technical terms such as validity, reliability, and utility of assessment instruments; and how to choose assessment instruments for a given purpose.

Individual assessment instruments are treated in the second part of the guide.

For each instrument a general description is given, followed by discussion on its uses, limitations, psychometric characteristics, and recommendations for medical teachers.
