Question Bank of Acupuncture

To help you master acupuncture and excel at examinations, I have compiled a Question Bank of Acupuncture. This question bank consists of essential testing questions selected from prestigious Chinese sources; it is truly the most comprehensive question bank of its kind in any language.

This Question Bank of Acupuncture contains 3,254 Multiple-Choice Questions and 2,137 Questions of Visual Images, for a total of 5,391 testing questions. The Questions of Visual Images offers, to both school classes and licensing bodies, a unique alternative to the so-called practicum examination, a time-consuming process in which students are individually quizzed on the extent of their knowledge.

The problem with this customary form of examination lies in its inefficiency, and leads me to ask why we cannot, in the age of the computer, transform the entire practicum examination. Why could an examiner not just as easily present questions to a group of examinees as to a single student, and why could these questions not take the form of visual images? Surely, if this method could save time and energy, what could possibly be the objection?

If an examinee can identify the contents of the image, chances are that they can also recognize the same thing in the clinical setting: if he or she can name the visual as S36 just by looking at it, for example, it is more than likely that they can also identify S36 on the body, which is the real purpose of practicum examination. Again, the student who can identify a picture as the Forest Fire technique, for example, is also likely able to apply the same technique in clinical practice.

Finally, if questions of visual images and multiple-choice are used in combination, many innovative ideas could be introduced to acupuncture examinations. Moreover, a student could also make use of this question bank to master acupuncture on the one hand and do well on examinations on the other.
