Recently released results from an American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) 2019 survey of MOCA-Peds participants show what pediatricians think about the new way to test their knowledge, among other key findings.
MOCA-Peds (Maintenance of Certification Assessment for Pediatrics) allows board-certified pediatricians to answer questions online on their own computers instead of taking an exam at a proctored testing center.
Highlights of the survey results include:
- 90.8% of participants said that the quality of MOCA-Peds questions were either “Excellent,” “Very Good,” or “Good.”
- 93.2% of participants indicated they had learned, refreshed, or enhanced their medical knowledge because of their participation.
- Most respondents described themselves as “Extremely Likely” to recommend MOCA-Peds to a fellow pediatrician.
“Overall, the results demonstrate that the majority of pediatricians favor MOCA-Peds as the way they’d like to be assessed,” says Adam Turner, a Senior Research Program Manager for the ABP. “We realized early on that pediatrician feedback was critical to building and maintaining this new program, particularly because the early user feedback we received proved so fruitful.”
The ABP will continue to survey participants annually to ensure that MOCA-Peds remains an effective platform for assessment and learning.
The survey was developed in partnership with RTI International, an independent, nonprofit research institute.
