Resumen

BARRIOS OSUNA, Irene et al. Diagnostic evaluation in postgraduate courses of the National Center of Minimun Access Surgery. Educ Med Super [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.1, pp.46-53. ISSN 0864-2141.

For the purpose of increasing the quality of postgraduate education, this paper presented the advantages of diagnostic evaluations in the programs including topics of laparoscopic surgery and digestive endoscopy. It gave response to the question of whether there are differences in the previous levels of formation of undergraduate students of the National Center of Minimum Access Surgery by way of identifying the inequalities among those who registered for 6 postgraduate studies in 2010 and 2011. Diagnostic tests were applied, which allowed weighing the mistakes made by the students in postgraduate topics and detecting the differences in the initial cognitive conditions during the analyzed period. The general percentages of mistakes were under 50 %, except for the laparoscopic gynecological surgery course that showed 51 % of mistakes. The results supported the importance of using diagnostic tests so that the professor can know in advance the level of knowledge of the participating students to assimilate the contents of the educational programs, and also to what extent they could have reached the objectives put forward in these programs.

Palabras clave : diagnostic evaluation; diagnostic tests; level of formation.
