  1. Combination 1: In this combination, the competency results were obtained by participants when they firstly took part in such assessment as WHO-ECAMM courses
  2. Combination 2: In this combination, the competency results were obtained by participants when they had not implemented such practical operation as WHO-ECAMM courses recently
  3. Combination 3: In this combination, the competency results were obtained by participants in WHO-ECAMM courses when they had not implemented such practical operation as WHO-ECAMM courses recently
  4. Combination 4: In this combination, the competency results were obtained by participants in WHO-ECAMM courses with one-third of them had implemented such practical operation as WHO-ECAMM courses recently
  5. PD, participants’ scores or accuracy (%) for parasite detection; SI, participants’ scores or accuracy (%) for species identification; PC, participants’ scores or accuracy (%) for parasite counting
  6. aCompetency results in training course instead of those in WHO-ECAMM course were applied
