The Question Screen – it is the part of the app where the user is actually presented with the questions for them to answer. The screen itself will be divided into two separate halves. The top half of the screen is the question-half of the screen. The bottom half of the screen is the answer-half of the screen. It will contain the various options that the user can select their answer from. Each half will be scrollable within their own given area.

The Summary Screen – It will provide the user a breakdown of how they performed in the recently completed drill set.

The Practice exam summary screen 1 – Similar to the SUMMARY SCREEN, once the user has completed a practice exam, they will then be presented with a screen which gives an overview of their overall performance.

The Practice exam summary screen 2 – Towards the bottom of this summary screen, the three buttons of note, are; ‘View Answers’, ‘Email as PDF’ and ‘Percentile Ranking’. ‘Email as PDF’ is a great way for the user to keep a track of how they progress through the various different Drill Sets and Practice Exams. The VIEW ANSWERS screen will work in the exact same way that it was done in the Drill Sets part of the app, and the PERCENTILE RANKING is a feature that is exclusive to the PRACTICE EXAMS.
Percentile ranking – The PERCENTILE RANKING is a feature that the user will find to be of great benefit in comparing where they rank with other users of the MedEntry App.
Once the user has selected EUREKA! QUESTION BANK from the HOME SCREEN, they will then be taken to a follow-up screen which lists the options; Section 1, Section 2 & Section 3. Once the user has selected the section that they wish to practice, the app immediately launches itself right into the QUESTION SCREEN.

QUESTION SCREEN is nearly identical to the question screens previously encountered in the other sections of he app. As this is just a continuous stream of questions, once the user has made their selection, they will select an answer by pressing down on one of the empty options, and then they will swipe across. In swiping across, the following screen will reveal the correct answer for that particular question. Once the user is done with that question, they will then swipe across once more and the following question will then appear. In this way, the user is able to answer as many questions as they need to. At the very top of the screen, a running total will keep a tally of how many questions the user has attempted and answered correctly within the one session.
Top scores – This will allow the user to keep a record of their best performances throughout the app. When the user clicks the TOP SCORES button from the HOME SCREEN, it will take them to an area where they can view their top three scores in a) each of the three sections from the Drilled Sets and b) the top scores from the Practice Exams. This gives the user a way to track their progress as they draw closer to the actual exam.
