Abstract
An instrument which reflects the discontent with examinations during the first
year of medical school was developed to serve a specific purpose at the College of Medicine,
Seoul National University. The instrument comprised fifteen question items each consisting of
a pair of statements with a five-point scale.
The instrument was pilot-tested with a sample group of first year medical students and
through this a revised questionnaire was generated. The final version of the instrument was
administered to the students of the entire class in 1978 and 1979 respectively immediately
after they had completed the first year course.
The results showed that emotional anxiety due to the examination itself was the most
significant source of stress (discontent). Other practices associated with examinations which
caused increased stress and discontent were the use of simple recall type of test items, opening
of test score to public and frequent tests given at the same time. The instrument demonstrated
that it is sufficient to reflect students' perceptions in regard with the examination they have
experienced.
