Abstract: Technology advancement has a major impact on the prevailing education methods and ways to present knowledge. More and more frequently, blended learning or even e-learning methods are implemented along with traditional education. On the other hand, rapid changes in medical sciences involve the need to continuously extend and update the teaching contents. All this contributes to seeking an optimized and efficient method of imparting knowledge in medical education on academic level, to maximize the learning results without imposing excessive load on the teaching staff. Comparison of learning effects and student satisfaction is the primary method of checking whether the implemented changes in learning methods and context bring positive results.This article presents an evaluation of methods of measuring learning efficiency and quality on the basis of classes held in selected medical subjects at the Faculty of Health Sciences of the Medical University of Bialystok and the results of the implementation of an electronic examination at the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pathophysiology, The Poznan University of Medical Sciences. Efficiency of traditional education was compared to that of distance learning, involving the use of an e-learning portal implemented for research purposes. The results of research on e-examination may constitute the basis for a discussion concerning electronic knowledge evaluation in medical education and an example implementation for those medical schools that are now commencing e-testing.
Keywords: e-learning , distance education, effectiveness of e-learning, quality of e-learning, e-examination, e-test, Standard QTI
