Clinical evaluation in prosthodontics: practical methods to improve validity and reliability at the undergraduate level

Clinical evaluation in prosthodontics: practical methods to improve validity and reliability at the undergraduate level

Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry 75(6): 675-680

The potential causes of reliability and validity problems with traditional methods of evaluating a student's clinical prosthodontic skills are reviewed. Practical methods of evaluating critical skills in a reliable and valid way are presented. These methods include clinical tests using written criteria and anonymous examiners, skills assessment by faculty members, patient-based written examinations, and bell ringer examinations.
