Simplifying complex OSCE examination processes

eSystem software removes complexity from Objective Structured Clinical Exams (OSCEs), whilst giving you what you need – a simple-to-use, insights driven tool for all your OSCE examinations. Being completely versatile, it accommodates all disciplines, and you can have as many candidates, stations and examiners as you need.

A single, controllable process allows you to set up OSCE exams quickly and accurately. And the checks and balances ensure that there aren’t any gaps – both when the assessment is being setup as well as when it is live.

Examiners record a candidate’s results either in a secure web portal or if an internet or network connection isn’t available, using an iOS or Android app to run the OSCE offline.

Post exam, standard setting methods such as Borderline Regression can be used to calculate the pass mark.
