OVERVIEW OF ASSESSMENT IN ANATOMY
Anatomy assessments promote deep learning which is crucial to prepare students for clinical practices. Anatomical knowledge can be measured by practical, written and oral assessments methods. Practical assessment and its clinical relevance provide the best opportunity to assess clinical application of the anatomical knowledge. Anatomy can be assessed using long or short essay questions, multiple choice questions, extended matching questions, multiple true- false questions, and short answer questions. Anatomists face some pressures due to shifting to modern curriculum of medical education and assessment. Furthermore, during the Covid-19 pandemic, new medical educational teaching and assessment strategies are developed. The purpose of this article is to highlight different anatomical assessment methods, relative limitations, benefits and how to deal with the assessment students results to modify instructional anatomy course for more improvements.
