Outcomes Assessment in Dental Hygiene Programs.
Grimes, Ellen B.
Journal of Dental Education, v63 n6 p470-78 Jun 1999
A survey of 22 dental-hygiene-program directors found that programs routinely and effectively assess student outcomes and use the information for program improvements and to demonstrate accountability. Both policy and faculty/administrative support were deemed important to implementation. Time constraints were a major barrier. Outcomes-assessment data have also been used as leverage for program-enhancement funding requests. (Author/MSE)
