- 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. “P”<0.05 was considered as statistically
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
