Abstract

Aim: Our study was to compare three different teaching method in first year medical students.

Objectives: To assess the outcome and perception of students towards teaching method.

Method: 150 students were divided randomly in to 3 different groups as group A (attended Lecture), group

B (attended demonstration) group C [attended small group discussion (SGD)], topic was Introduction to

  1. As a pretest all the groups had answered a set of structured 25 MCQs, after attending their respective

teaching sessions, immediately post test I and after 1 month post-test II was conducted. For subjective

assessment likert scale was used.

Statistical Analysis: Paired t test was used for comparison. ā€œPā€<0.05 was considered as statistically

significant.

Results: There was a significant difference between pre-test and post-test I, pre-test and post-test II in all the

groups (P<0.001). When we compared post-test I and II, group A and B showed the significant difference

(P<0.05), as their performance in post-test II has reduced, but there was no significant difference showed

by group C between post-test I and II, as their performance in post-test II has not reduced. Subjectively also

Students preferred SGD as better teaching method.

Concussion: Looking at results, clearly states that the SGD is better compared to other two method, both

subjectively and objectively.
