Melbourne Dental School Construct Map Development

Project Details

The Melbourne Dental School (MDS) is currently undertaking a curriculum and assessment review of the dentistry and oral health courses. This project provides technical expertise to MDS to support the development of construct maps that describe increasing levels of competence of MDS students as they move from novices up to the attainment of the Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Dentist and the Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Oral Health Therapist. Once developed, the construct maps will be used by the MDS to inform curriculum and assessment design decisions in order to improve alignment and transparency across their subjects as they prepare for the external course accreditation standards required by the Australian Dental Council.
