Abstract

This paper discusses a computer based training system, ICAS (Interactive Computerised Assessment System. The system is looked at through paedological aspects of studying and learning with medical students. Thereafter, there follows a review of the unique aspects of ICAS under the areas of specific requirements for medical students, and overall educational aspects of the system. The paper concludes with a description of the ICAS design. This includes a review of the implementation of ICAS, showing that ICAS amplifies the learning experience for medical students, and is a significant step forward in medical CBT.
