Original article in German. Excerpt: "Candidates evaluate digital exams very positively: 86% generally like digital exams, 92% consider the handling self-explanatory, and 71% like the integrated high-resolution pictures. These are the results of a survey conducted in 2014 which followed a digital CCT pilot project. During these tests the final exams for the subjects emergency surgery, skin and genital diseases, as well as pediatric and adolescent medicine were conducted with computers.
In some subjects, the transition from the classic paper-based to digital exams has already taken place – for example, in internal medicine as well as in gynecology and obstetrics.
Now, the majority of all other multiple-choice subjects follows. “With this conversion, Austria is a pioneer,” says Dr. Jonas vor dem Esche, Head of Business Development & Marketing at IQUL GmbH (Institute for Quality Management in University Teaching). The company, located in the German city of Bergisch Gladbach, is responsible for the development of the technology that is now being used by the Austrian Academy of Physicians to carry out the digital CCTs. The company handles the complete technical processing and owns and operates all exam laptops. Two-to-three employees are on the ground, depending upon the number of candidates, and are available to help with any technical questions or difficulties during the exam."
