Abstract

Introduction: Student assessment is an effective tool for improving teaching performance. The purpose of this study was to analyze the prosthodontics practical teaching assessment by students of the Institute of Odontology and Stomatology in Cheikh Anta Diop University.
Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive and cross-sectional study carried out among 103 students in Master 1 and Master 2 in dentistry. The variables observed included student supervision, preclinical work and evaluation of practical prosthodontics learning. The Likert scale graduated from 1 to 5 allowed a quantitative assessment. SPSS® software version 17.0 was used for statistical analysis. The comparison of averages used Student t-test. The risk of error has been set at 5%.
Results: The majority of students (65.1%) found the number of teachers insufficient. Learning objectives were stated for 60.2% of the sample and evaluation procedures were specified for 41.7%. For 73.8% of students, a demonstration was made at each session. The video projector was used according to 69.9% of students. Concerning the certification evaluation, 66% of them disagreed with the final single formula.
Conclusion : Given the limitations observed in student assessment, an evalution of its effectiveness would improve teaching performance.
