Generating Clinical Exercises of Varying Difficulty
This paper outlines a system, TraumaCASE, for automatically generating realistic cases of the appropriate level of difficulty based on a model of the user’s current level of expertise. Such cases could be used for instructional purposes by a training module or for computer-based exams by a quality assurance module.
