Assessment in medical education has changed dramatically over the last two decades. The current, global call for medical practitioners has encouraged medical schools to open their doors and expand their curricula, generating an increasing demand for guidance with regards to the assurance and improvement of the quality of training programs and systems. This chapter provides the reader with an overview of psychometric post-examination analysis. The authors' view is that these are strategic educational assets that can help medical educators to understand and evidence the extent to which assessment data and their interpretation reflect the achievement of learning objectives, and the validity of assessment methods implemented in medical education programs.
