At the Summer Camp Amelia Island workshop of 2023, ALL the evaluations for the TalEval workshop were rated as “Excellent”! Here are comments from some of the evaluations:

“Felt intmate. All my questions were answered. Great think tank of ideas and problem solving”.

“I learned a lot today for our new program.”

“Excellent presenter and valuable material”

“When first started using Taleval we had a webinar. I learned a lot more valuable information today!”

” This course was fantastic!! Cindy was very thorough and made using TalEval easy to understand. I
appreciate everything she covered in the course today. Thank you!!!”

“The class was great!! Even after using the system for several years I still learned some very valuable information to take back with me to implement!!

“Thank you for being available after the seminar.”

“This course answered all of my burning questions so that I can most effectively use TalEval. I appreciate that we spent the majority of the time learning from an expert rather than just exchanging ideas with colleagues from other programs. I look forward to sharing the information with faculty”

TalEval Clinical Teaching Methodology | DH Method of Education (dhmethed.com)

The TalEval Grading is an Objective Format

With this grading method students do not get a grade for the clinic session or individual patient appointments. TalEval Grading is a more comprehensive, objective grading format since it gathers data about the student’s performance on specific procedures and skills over a span of time on a variety of patients of various levels of periodontal conditions, age groups, special needs and recare patients. Graphs and charts show student performance by all instructor evaluations. That is how you and the student know which particular skills they performed at a level of competency and which are in need of improvement. Students do not fail for the day for making errors since that skill performance is compared to all the times they performed the skill on all patients treated. They may lose points for critical errors, but they do not fail for the day. TalEval measures all the items of patient care over each half of the semester and generates a grade based on the mean and the standard deviation.  The TalEval Grade Form is an itemized list of procedures based on the American Dental Hygiene Association’s Dental Hygiene Process of Care. Students and instructors are less stressed in clinic with this grading system since it is not about “a grade for the day”, it is about patient care and individual skill development. Click on the Blue links to the right for training materials and forms and guides:
