Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) have been a popular means of assessment in the medical profession for several decades. As a performance-based tool, OSCEs have advantages over other methods of assessment. In this webinar, key principles surrounding the development of reliable, valid, and fair OSCEs will be reviewed with a focus on the practical knowledge required to support the sound integration of OSCEs within curriculum.

Three distinct examples of OSCE and virtual OSCE (V-OSCE) assessing three different national dental hygiene competencies will be presented by dental hygiene faculty members: one focusing on the implementation of intraoral radiographs, another one assessing a comprehensive health history, and lastly, one that assesses dental anatomy and morphology.
