Rubric Development and Peer Review for Predoctoral Dental Education
Journal of Dental Education
Purpose: This article outlines a process and template for developing rubrics that can be shared across predoctoral dental education programs.
Methods: The rubrics were developed using a peer-review process for incorporating clinical skills and professional behaviors required for predoctoral dental students in their development of competent independent practice.
Results: This article shares the process, templates, and rubrics that were developed for a new predoctoral dental program. These rubrics can be implemented across various educational settings including didactic curriculum, preclinical, clinical, and extra-mural educational experiences. Successful rubric implementation requires the identification of a software and its key features.
Conclusion: These rubrics are presented with the intent to share among dental education institutions looking to identify novel ways for longitudinal student assessment. These rubrics also offer the opportunity for collaborative use among various dental schools.
