An evaluation system, COREBuilder, was developed to overcome difficulties in Clinically Oriented Reasoning Exam (CORE) and to improve the skills of students in clinical reasoning and decision making. Clinical reasoning and sufficient acquiration of theoretical and practical structure of problem solving need to be complied by the programmers developing educational software in medical training. The best learning could be carried out in the hospital with the real cases, thus, the best evaluation of the skills in clinical reasoning could also be determined at the same place. At the stage of clinical reasoning in the medical cases, frequently, there is no single right or wrong answer, and right approaches could listed from the best appropriate to the less. At this point, experience/ability in clinical reasoning becomes effective. A set up for examination involving with a classroom, chairs, tables, hiring people to oversee the exam is costly and time-consuming. This system proposes to evaluate clinical reasoning skills more efficiently than classical assessment systems
