Abstract
  • Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of using a self-instructional-radiographic-anatomy (SIRA) module on Dental Hygiene (DH) faculty test performance when identifying normal radiographic anatomy. Methods: Pilot study with a repeated measures design. Exempt from Institutional-Review-Board review. DH clinical faculty (N=23) were invited to participate by completing an online: pre-test, SIRA module, immediate post-test, and a four-month follow-up post-test. Descriptive analyses, the Friedman’s ANOVA, and the Exact-Wilcoxon-Signed-Rank test were used. Results: Pre-test response rate was 73.9% (N=17); 88.2% (N=15) completed both post-tests. Participants included: 5 full-time faculty, 5 part-time faculty, and 5 graduate teaching assistants. The Friedman’s ANOVA indicated no significant difference in the percentage of correct responses between the tests. The Exact-Wilcoxon-Signed-Rank test indicated no statistical significance when comparing percent change between tests. Conclusion: The SIRA module did not significantly affect DH faculty test performance. Future research should include a larger sample size when evaluating the effectiveness of possible calibration methods.
