Students’ perceptions of prehospital web-based examinations

Brett Williams, Monash University, Victoria, Australia


Abstract
This study examined the attitudes of prehospital undergraduate students undertaking a web-based examination (WBE) as an adjunct to the traditional paper-based examination (PBE). Following the completion of the WBE second year Bachelor of Emergency Health (BEH) undergraduate students at Monash University (n = 94) were asked to complete a questionnaire which was designed to obtain information about students’ attitudes of WBE. Quantitative results produced high student satisfaction and acceptance of WBE as an appropriate teaching and assessment resource in the BEH degree. Generally, students found the WBE experience to be very positive and preferred WBE to PBE.
