Course Learning Outcomes
The purpose of SAOHE is to enable students to:
1. Collect, record and interpret relevant medical, dental and social histories from patients and safely and accurately examine the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity to enable collaborative action plans to be made and patient records to be created
2. Draw on the previous outcome and by applying knowledge of the biological basis of dentistry; provide appropriate treatment and advice for individuals with early/incipient carious lesions, gingivitis and mild periodontal conditions, using current concepts of minimum intervention and within the context of dental hygiene and dental therapy practice
3. Apply knowledge of the behavioural and social sciences to design, develop, implement and evaluate patient educational materials for selected groups of patients related to the prevention of common dental diseases.

The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:
- Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
- Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
- Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
- Assessment must maintain academic standards.
Assessment SummaryThe SAOH Examination is an Objective Structured Clinical Assessment (OSCA) exam which is divided into stations, covering clinical case studies that assist students to integrate their knowledge into oral health practice. It assesses the core competencies that are outlined for the second year of the BOH.
Assessment Related RequirementsKnowldge of all aspects of each of the second year courses of the BOH is required for successful completion of this assessment.
Assessment DetailThe Semester 1 OSCA is designed to provide students with an opportunity to experience a clinical stations exam and receive formative feedback on their performance.
The results of the Semester 1 OSCA do not count towards the final result for this course. Instead, it assists students to be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses and develop strategies for improvement. It also assists students to identify any knowledge gaps and seek remedial assistance through discussion with the course and/or year coordinators.
The Semester 2 OSCA is a high stakes summative assessment task.
The pass mark for each station is 55% and each student must pass a minimun of 70% of the stations, in order to be granted a remedial opportunity.
This assessment approach ensures that each student has reached a level of competency to practice safely when caring for patients, at a level that is expected of a second year student.

Final results for this course will be made available through Access Adelaide.
The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.
