Writing questions for critical appraisal exams

Writing questions for critical appraisal exams requires a detailed knowledge of critical appraisal knowledge and concepts. As a leading provider of training in this field, we've been approached a few times to help write exam questions and provide model answers. This has been a thoroughly enjoyable task (!) and also given us an invaluable insight into the precision with which exam candidates must write their answers. Writing questions requires clarity of thought to avoid ambiguity and an eye for detail. If you're interested in commissioning us to write exam questions, get in touch. Confidentiality is assured.
