Questionnaires dealing with the 1977 in-training examination for residents in obstetrics and gynecology were sent to residency directors and residents. More than 70% were returned. Responses indicated a generally positive view of the examination, especially the multiple-choice questions (MCQs). There was strong support for the retention of patient management problems (PMPs) and feedback, but there was significant criticism of the format for feedback and the appropriateness of PMP options. Correlational analysis indicated that in evaluating the examination, residents emphasized the quality of the MCQs and feedback, while residency directors based their evaluation on a broader range of examination qualities. The analysis suggested that the questionnaire results were generally representative of the views of residency directors and residents.
