Welcome to the demonstration site for Script Concordance Testing .
The demo utilizes two different styles of questioning. These are not standard style multiple choice questions.
If you will be accessing these cases in an exam situation, please heed the following advice: please note that, while you are accessing these cases through a web browser, all of your activities on this computer are closely tracked by the OpenLabyrinth engine. You may not be prevented from going to other websites but such activities will show up in your session log. Please respect the rules of the exam.
There is one case per page. You will typically have one to three questions per case.
You are free to change your mind about a response while you are on that case. Do not use your browser's back button to return to a previous case as all subsequent answer responses will be discarded. Please ensure that your responses are complete before proceeding to the next case.
For each case, there is an initial description. This is common to all the questions on that page. Thereafter, for each question, there is a hypothesis statement, and then additional data. You are to choose whether that additional data makes your hypothesis, diagnosis, investigation or treatment step more or less likely.
For the next question on that page, there will be a different hypothesis, or investigation/treatment step, along with some new additional data. There is no relationship between the questions apart from the descriptive paragraph at the top of the page. Your answer to the second and third question on a page is completely independent of what you answered or were asked in the previous question.
In some of the question examples, we have tried hiding some of the second and third parts of the questions, so that you are not distracted: you must click on question two (2) and three (3) within each case, if applicable, to reveal the content. You must click on the link 'If you were thinking of…' for example. There is no harm in revealing the second and third question, and also no advantage in doing so, as the questions are independent of each other. Only the descriptive stem at the top of the page is common to all of them.
When done, click on the [Proceed to next case] button at the bottom of the page to continue.
Some of the questions may also employ a new approach called Situational Judgment Testing. These are identified by the following graphic and statement:
In the following question, please drag the choices into order from most (top) to least appropriate (bottom). It is not sufficient to simply indicate your first choice.
In these, you are asked to rank all five (5) options in order from most to least appropriate. Note that it is not sufficient to simply indicate your top choice. Even the least appropriate choices matter in your selection so make sure to place even your least desirable choices in your preferred order.
