Abstract

Introduction: Student assessment of teaching aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses of teaching. This study aimed to analyze the evaluation of the clinical prosthodontics teaching by students of the Institute of Odontology and Stomatology of the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar.
Material and Methods:This was a cross-sectional descriptive study of 103 Master 1 and Master 2 students in dental surgery. The variables were related to items concerning framing, clinical teaching and assessment of clinical prosthodontics learning during the last 2 years of dental studies. Using the Likerts scale, the student had to make a quantitative assessment by assigning a score ranging from 1 to 5, depending on the degree of accreditation. The SPSS® software version 17.0 was used for statistical analysis. The comparison of averages used the Student t test at 5% risk of error.
Results:The majority of the sample (79.6%) felt that the number of teachers was insufficient. Teachers were not available according to 51.4% of students. Training objectives were clearly defined for 81.5% of students. For 44.7% of them, the number of course hours was sufficient for clinical learning. Concerning the certification evaluation of learning, 66% of the students disapproved of the single final formula.
Conclusion:The practice of clinical teaching evaluation by students is an essential pillar of the overall approach to improve the prosthodontics teaching.

Keywords:Prosthodontics, Clinical teaching, Assessment, Students.
