  1. 1. For current PA students, do you get to review each of your exams and see what specific questions you got wrong?

    • Yes
      15
    • No
      10
  2. 2. Do you think it's ethical for a program to withhold any and all form of exam review from their students (even in a way that does not jeopardize exam confidentiality)- so you only know your score- not any wrong answers?

    • No - It's unethical
      10
    • Yes - It's acceptable.

Sometimes we would be able to see the exact question we got wrong, but not necessarily have the right answer to the question. Sometimes we wouldn't be allowed to see the exact question due to classmate illness or other things so we wouldn't "share" this info. Other times we only received info on "general" areas of questions we got wrong. For the most part, we had to review the questions we missed right after the test, which was nice.

We receive exam reports stating which questions we got wrong. We then have the opportunity to review a print-out of the exam key on our own time in the program office. No cell phones, computers, etc. Getting questions wrong and not knowing why isn’t a good way to be tested. Some profs have exam reviews if enough students are interested.
