The KREF (Knowledge Retention Evaluation Framework) exam pilot implementation was carried out at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Banja Luka from September 5 to 9, 2022. The pilot implementation of KREF, which was carried out within the work package WP 2.3 of the IQ Pharm Erasmus+ project, was attended by representatives of partner institutions, the University of Tuzla, the University of Mostar, the University of Split, the University of Novi Sad, the University of Banja Luka and the IQ Pharm project coordinator, University of Sarajevo.
The participants created 7 vignettes with a total of 100 questions based on the KREF exam blueprint created earlier. The exam itself was conducted on Thursday, September 8, with part of the third- and fifth-year students studying Pharmacy at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Banja Luka.
The evaluation and discussion of the exam results was carried out on the same day with the adoption of conclusions important for the final implementation of the KREF exam. To the joy of all participants, the pilot implementation of the KREF exam was successfully implemented.
We would like to thank the students of the Pharmacy Department who took the time and volunteered to take the knowledge test, thus helping in the pilot implementation of KREF.
