Examination Blueprint

« Back to Glossary Index

An examination or assessment blueprint is a plan of the content of an assessment that defines emphasis (in percentage) allocated to covered topics (e.g. 10% cardiovascular disease, 5% psychiatry) and other important characteristics like tested competencies, time, and item formats. The level of details of a blueprint varies depending on the stake of the assessment. A blueprint provides evidence for validity of the examination.
