An examination and education system for clinical disciplines of medicine provides an efficient method for testing the state of students’or doctors’ knowledge. An examination consists of the following tests:

basing on the patient’s data and symptoms some essential investigations should be chosen, then a diagnosis should be selected and finally a proper treatment method should be chosen.

Each choice could change the score / negative points are allowed / and is always followed by comments. The kind of this system response might depend on several former choices / so called dependent responses A Items in the presented lists are displayed in a random order which is generated for each test execution.

Up to 16 students might be simultaneously examined by system running on the SM4 computer / PDP 11/40.
