An international conference with a line-up of leading expert speakers in the field of medical assessment.

Progress Testing (PT) is a powerful assessment tool to evaluate the continuing growth of student knowledge during the length of a course.

It provides frequent and regular observations that permit rapid remediation interventions. It delivers regular feedback to students on their performance and how to direct their learning. After a lengthy and often expensive course, this testing methodology prevents any surprises about performance during their final exams. It helps to consolidate learning in curriculum areas and offers valuable feedback to faculty on their teaching.

Keynote speakers
Professor Cees van der Vleuten, Professor of Education, Maastricht University, The Netherlands
Professor Adrian Freeman, Professor of Medical Education, University of Exeter Medical School, UK
Assistant Professor Carlos Collares, Maastricht University, The Netherlands

Topics will include:

  • Understanding progress testing
  • The psychometrics of progress testing
  • Different contexts for progress testing
