The test questions were such that no single good answer was possible. For example, the selection of the best drug or the dosage form could differ between different settings. In each university the correct answers to the test questions were separately determined by the teachers, usually in consensus with one or more members of the department. The answer forms from study and control groups were coded by number and scored blindly by the teacher of the group. Each of the six steps were separately scored between 0 and 3 (0 = no or bad answer, 1 = disputable answer, 2 - acceptable answer and 3 = good answer).
In two universities (New Delhi and Yogyakarta) all test results (study and control group, all three tests) were later blindly scored again by an independent scorer.
