A framework for high stakes postgraduate competency-based examinations
This guidance explores a set of guiding principles for standard setting in the context of summative postgraduate medical competency-based examinations. The aim of examinations within this context is to separate the competent candidates from the not competent candidates, according to how they compare to a minimum standard. This guidance therefore does not explore norm-referenced (or relative) standards.
