Evaluation of modified essay questions (MEQ) and multiple choice question (MCQ) as a tool for assessment f the cognitive skills of undergraduate medical students.
Chronotype was determined by the MEQ. The questionnaire consists of 19 items regarding preference for sleep and wake times as well as the time of day the respondent feels at peak performance.
The mean MEQ score was not significantly different between the healthy controls (56.04, SD [+ or -] 10.1) versus those with epilepsy (53.4, SD [+ or -] 9.9) (p = 0.81).
When we broke down the cohort into a younger (1849 years old) and older ([greater than or equal to]50 years old) individuals, we discovered that older healthy controls had significantly higher mean MEQ scores (62.6, SD [+ or -] 7.5) compared to older epilepsy patients (55.5, SD [+ or -] 9.0) with a p value of 0.002.
A comparison between those with focal epilepsy and those with generalized epilepsy revealed no significant difference in the mean MEQ score (55 versus 47, p = 0.31).
The number of generalized epilepsy patients in our cohort was low, so overall there was no significant difference in mean MEQ scores or the proportion of evening types between the overall epilepsy cohort and age- and sex-matched controls.
The fact that they only used TLE patients in the focal epilepsy group could have accounted for the significant difference between MEQ scores between the generalized and focal groups.
