Aim: Different types of examinations are performed to measure the level of the knowledge of the students in anatomy education. The aim of this study was to investigate if there is any difference between announcing and not announcing the quizzes -performed during the education term- from the success point of view.
Methods: Students were separated into two groups (Group1, n=92; Group2, n=99). In the first quiz, same group of question were given the students; Group1 was informed, and Group2 was uninformed about the examination. A second quiz was performed one month later with new questions; both groups were informed before the examination. The results of the Group1 were compared with Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test; same test was applied for the results of the Group2 (p<0,05). The results of the Group1 were compared with the results of the Group2 with independent sample t test.
Results: The results (mean±SD) of the first and second examinations of the Group1 were 37,4 ±28,9 and 41,4±24,05, respectively; of the Group2 were 27,17±24,9 and 70±22,89, respectively. The mean of both examinations of the Group1 was 32,28, and of the Group2 was 55,71. There was no significant difference between the results of the Group1; there was significant difference between the results of the Group2. The mean result of the Group2 was significantly better than the Group1.
Conclusions: Not announcing the quizzes is negatively influencing the examination results of the students, and uninformed students are working harder to compensate the results of the unannounced examination and they get higher point average.
