This project will oversee the import of content from OSCA and OSCA+ (as well as the generation of new content) into the application to support assessment and feedback for MBChB that will be deployed in MVM118 following a successful procurement process in MVM107.

The activities in this project will include:

  • Export of existing data from existing application(s) and external source(s) or question bank(s)
  • Data cleansing (removing duplicates, editing, deleting unwanted)
  • Import cleansed data into Practique
  • Creation of new questions
  • Establish a process/plan for on-going update of content/creation of new content
  • Agree and create a new tagging framework and implement
  • Confirm the status of all MBChB data left in OSCA and OSCA+ at conclusion and prior to decommission

The following activities will need to be covered across both MVM118 and MVM119, TBC whether they will be aligned to either one specifically:

  • Communications to all stakeholders - approach planned to have joint communications
  • Exam support - both projects delivering components, approach to consider it a shared outcome
  • Operating Level Agreement (OLA) - these will be drawn up across both but delivered singularly
  • Support MBChB change - not the technical elements surrounding the introduction of a new exam application, but the structural, process and people based change that will emerge
  • Set up a user group - they will work with FRY-IT to shape future releases, MBChB requirements and review all change


MVM107 was initiated on the back of a National Student Survey where the Medical School established that improving both the assessment and feedback was the number one priority. The student experience is greatly enhanced when feedback can be provided at the question or topic level. Currently this is difficult without compromising the question bank. Hence, a new online assessment application is required to introduce a faster and much improved student experience.
