Abstract

In this study, we focused on the automatic scoring of medical clinical abilities. The objective clinical ability tests that all undergraduate students take before starting clinical practice were considered. As these tests evaluate practical skills, there is a problem that the learning method is poor compared to the examination of other lectures. Therefore, in this study, we recorded the voice of a student examining a simulated patient using a microphone. We constructed a system comprising a speech recognition module and a scoring system that performed automatic scoring by checking against a prepared example answer. This system was evaluated by medical doctors.
