Abstract

Background: Final exam is one of evaluation methods of students. We can utilize indexes such as difficulty index and discrimination index in order to analyze each test questions or to determine questions taxonomy. However, these methods have inter- testing look and do not consider the relationship between various tests results. Inter correlation between final exam score and the average indirectly shows the relationship between various tests results. The present study is performed with the aim of determining Bachelor students’ scores correlation rate in the curriculum year of 92-93 in health college of Mashhad Medical Sciences. Methods: in this cross- sectional study 158 B.S students were examined in three different health areas of interest in Health College. Average, students’ scores in each course and curriculum case demographic characteristics were elicited. We used Pierson test for correlation test of students’ scores with total grade. Test level of significance considered p<0, 05. Results: research findings shows that a higher average in Mashhad indigenous and female students than Mashhad non- native and male students. Furthermore, the results of scores correlation test with grade indicate the least correlation rate in general courses than in specific courses. Conclusions: we can make use of this methodology for test assessment with respect to correlation test validity and simplicity.
