Diplomates Will Soon See Their First OLA Performance Update

Diplomates Will Soon See Their First OLA Performance Update

One question raised about Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) is, “When will I know how I’m doing?” If you’re a diagnostic radiology diplomate or one with a DR subspecialty certificate who’s regularly participating, you’ll see your progress on your OLA dashboard before the end of the year.
Some diplomates will reach their annual progress requirement as soon as July. We covered options available for those who finish their annual progress requirement before the end of the year in a blog last month.
The passing standard for each question is established by OLA participants who volunteer as question raters. This is an important OLA feature—the radiology community itself sets the passing standard for each question. To become a rater, you only need to log into the OLA site, watch a short video and complete a four-question quiz.
The passing standard for OLA is criterion-referenced; the assessment is not graded on a curve. The standard for each question is established individually.
When you answer OLA questions, you immediately know whether you are getting them right. Each question has a brief explanation of the correct answer and at least one reference. There’s also a question history on your dashboard.
