Rehana Rehman, Azhar Iqbal, Rabiya Rehan.

Abstract
Objective: To assess perception and performance of students in order to evaluate outcome of Neuro Physiology lab course in learning of Physiology.
Materials & Methods:
The cross sectional study took place in Bahria University Medical & Dental College in a module of neurosciences for a period of 12 weeks. The perception of students on laboratory course for Specific Learning Objectives (SLO); SLO1; learning of concepts SLO2; understanding of scientific approach and SLO3; development of critical thinking was assessed by five point scale of SALG (Student Assessment of Learning Gains).The knowledge gained and performance skill acquired were evaluated on the basis of grading; unsatisfactory less than 50%.good 50-75%, excellent >75% by OSPE (Objective Structured Practical Examination) and OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) methods.
Results:
92 students with mean age 20± 2 years (54% males,46% females) responded to a self reported questionnaire.SLO1 was attained by 90 % students while 91% and 92% considered it to be helpful in derivation of SLO2 and SLO3, respectively. The good and excellent performance in OSPE and OSCE was found to be statistically significant (p value<0.05).
Conclusion:
The lab skills course in neurosciences was perceived to be supportive for leaning which enabled the students to perform well in practical examination conducted by OSPE and OSCE.

Key words: Specific Learning objectives, Student Assessment of Learning Gains, Objective Structured Physical Examination, Objective Structured Clinical Examination. Specific Learning objectives, Student Assessment of Learning Gains, Objective Structured Ph
