Unlike surgical staging techniques such as mediastinoscopy, EBUS and EUS are minimally invasive and cost-effective.

The clarity and content validity of the questions were tested using a Delphi-like approach.

Construct validity was explored by administering the test to 3 groups with different levels of endosonography experience: 27 medical students, 18 respiratory physicians with limited endosonography experience, and 14 experts in endosonography.

The internal consistency reliability was calculated at 0.91.

The 3 groups performed significantly differently (ANOVA: p Received: January 06, 2014Accepted: April 04, 2014Published online: May 21, 2014 Issue release date: June 2014 Number of Print Pages: 7 Number of Figures: 2 Number of Tables: 1 ISSN: 0025-7931 (Print) e ISSN: 1423-0356 (Online) For additional information: https:// Copyright: All rights reserved.

Background: Theoretical testing provides the necessary foundation to perform technical skills.

Additionally, testing improves the retention of knowledge.

This study was comprised of two parts: the development of MCQs and gathering of validity evidence (fig. Questions rated ‘1' by one or more members of the panel were excluded and questions with a mean rating of 4 or less were reevaluated until unanimity was reached.
