A study was set up to assess usefulness and acceptability of a method of assessing professional behaviour of undergraduate dental students.
The first year preclinical course at the Department of Dentistry and Oral Hygiene, University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
Materials and Method
A form was developed with an ordinal scale to assess undergraduate professional behaviour. A standard means of carrying out assessment was then undertaken and subsequently used to give feedback to the students at the end of each of three terms. The students’ self-assessment was then compared to that of the staff.
