How can your faculty become a collaboration partner?

If you are interested in implementing the Progress Test Medizin at your faculty, you are welcome to contact us anytime. 

We offer all interested faculties a one-time free of charge PTM trial. The PTM has its own conduction database, i.e. the PTM is fully electronic. If you should decide in favor of the PTM after the trial, we will approach the closing of the contract. The cooperation agreement was drafted and audited by our legal department. We will send you the agreement to review and you may proof it via the legal department of your faculty. Additionally to this cooperation agreement, we will set up an agreement regarding the DSGVO.

How is the PTM conducted?

We do not use any personal information for the execution of the PTM as the students receive IDs through their faculty. One execution-ID is assoziated with the same student throughout their medical studies. This way, we can give longitudinal feedbacks to the students. We provide the results digitally, (generally) via a cloud service.  

What are the collaboration fees?

Usually, the PTM is offered twice a year (at the beginning of the semester). Each faculty is paying a yearly collaboration fee, which is to be settled in two installments. The fees include among others the compilation of the PTM through the AG PTM,  further development of the PTM, the costs of the database hosting, etc.. A small evaluation fee is charged for each participating student.

How do the faculties receive their feedbacks?

After evaluation of the PTM through the AG PTM, we provide the result feedback for the students and all feedbacks for the respective faculties via a password-protected cloud service. There you can download the feedbacks within a certain timeframe. 

The student feedbacks are then distributed through the faculties to their own students. At this point, every faculty has their own distribution system (e.g. Hochschulinformationssystem (HIS), by mail,...)


Exchange within the partnership

The partnership lives from the exchange among all cooperation partners and the AG PTM. We have yearly collaboration meetings, which are usually (under normal circumstances) hold in Berlin.Throughout the Corona pandemic we switched to online meetings. During these meetings we present new developments and discuss suggestions, remarks and wishes of our cooperation partners.

Additionally, it is possible for our cooperation partners to contribute in a content-related way, for example by submitting new questions for the PTM. We reimburse the question up to certain number, i.e. the yearly cooperation fee can be reduced. After reviews of the questions, they will be added to our database and can be used for any upcoming PTMs.


Feedback for faculties

Faculties get a comprehensive feedback, based on aggregated data. 

The PTM answers the following questions: 

  • How do the students learn our content?
  • Does the curriculum fit the learning behavior?
  • Is the learning sustainable - do our learning spirals work?

Besides detailled information about each specialty, organsystem and semesters, we also give feedback, which is aimed at the subject representatives. For example:

What are the overall results per semester compared to all others?

The graphic depict the performace per semester of the own faculty compared to all other coorperation partner. The boxplots show the performance of the respective cohort of this semester; the diamonds represent the  corresponding 10-year median.

How are the questions per semester answered?

These grafics show the level of knowledge per specialty and organ system of the cohorts in the semesters according to the current PTM.
