Program Assessment Practices in Dental Hygiene Education.
McCann, Ann L.; Schneiderman, Emet D.
Journal of Dental Education, v59 n11 p1041-46 Nov 1995
A survey of 138 dental hygiene program directors found dissatisfaction with program assessment practices and use of assessment data. Most use alumni/employer surveys and curriculum evaluations by students, but share results mostly with faculty. They use the data for curriculum revision but not for adding assessment measures, student remediation, or gaining program resources. A more comprehensive assessment model is recommended. (Author/MSE)
