Abstract

The Computer-based Tutorial for a 21 point vision examination (CT21) is an educational program intended to enhance optometry students' knowledge and understanding of a standardized comprehensive vision exam. The program may also be used in conjunction with clinical procedures classes as an educational aid. The entire tutorial is presented in a computerized format for Macintosh computers using CD ROM. Video clips are presented along with questions for students to respond to, thereby enhancing understanding of individual components of a "21 point" vision examination. The individualized program allows students to answer questions at their own pace and receive immediate feedback in a non-threatening environment.
