Initial Assessment
Here at Everest Education we are committed to provide excellent service tailored to
individual student needs, hence the need for initial assessment which sub-divided into: –
Basic literacy skills test: to enrol we require applicants to successfully pass on initial
literacy test
Learning Styles: we understand that students learn in different ways and that individual
learning styles are different from each other and therefore information about individual
learning styles are gathered at the induction by giving students VARK Questionnaire to fill
which will help us to tailor our lessons in a way that benefit all students.
Continuous Assessment
Assessing students’ progress is very important and this forms an integral part of their
studies as this will have impact on their eligibility for entry into the Examination. This
assessment will be on going and documented throughout the course duration which will
also be discussed at the reviews. It is therefore important for students to submit course
work within the stipulated time. Different forms of assessment will be included in your
learning which includes:
 Home works
 Group presentations
 Individual learner review
 Individual presentation
 ROE (Record OF Experience)
 Periodic tests and Reviews
 Mock Exams
Monitoring of performance
To help ensure that students keep up to date with their studies and do not fall behind, the
dental tutor will meet with each student individually during the course. This provides the
student with an opportunity to discuss any areas of weakness or problems they may be
experiencing with the course. It also provides the dental tutor with an opportunity to
discuss any areas of concern she may have and the actions that should be taken to
address them.
On-Line Record of Experience (E-roe)
The record of Experience, a form of work based continual assessment, is now a
mandatory part of the syllabus and evidence of its completion must be submitted to the
NEBDN, by the course tutor, prior to sitting the exam. The Record of Experience is a
written record of workplace activities carried out under the observation of a GDC
registrant. Full support of the Dental Nurse’s employer will be required.
Your tutor will explain how to complete this and further details are in your Prospectus.
