Admin/Biographical History From 1973 until 1990 Jesse Edwards was an active leader in the Association of Physician Assistant Programs (APAP), now the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA). He served as President during 1988-1989. During this time he developed and implemented the use of the first computerized test item bank specifically intended to assistant PA students in their self-evaluation efforts. This test item bank was known as Mr. TIB (Test Item Bank). It was used by almost all PA Programs and students for the purpose of evaluating their cognitive clinical knowledge. It also provided a means by which one PA program could assess their students' progress in relation to students in other programs. Mr. TIB was the precursor to the current PACKRAT evaluation tool available through the PAEA. His service to the profession also includes serving as a consultant to several emerging PA Programs, and service to the ARC-PA Accreditation Organization.
