Customized Test Batteries

The Customized Test Battery platform enables you to administer a series of examinations using a combination of standardized subject tests and customized examinations created through the Customized Assessment Services (CAS) program. This platform can expand your assessment capabilities—for example, you might use the test battery platform to:

  • Administer a clinical science subject test along with a custom module of items covering associated basic science concepts. This would enable you to align assessments to a curriculum that emphasizes fundamental science in the clerkship.
  • Administer a basic science subject test and supplement it using other basic science content and/or the advanced clinical vignettes available in the CAS item pool.

Below is an example of a test battery constructed using the Battery Builder application:
