The Research and Application of Process Evaluation Method on Prosthodontics Web-Based Course Learning
Aim To explore and apply a comprehensive evaluation method for web-based prosthodontics course learning. Methods A set of evaluation index system of prosthodontics web-based course learning process was preliminarily constructed through analyzing the influencing factors of web-based course learning effect. Expert consulting method and analytic hierarchy process were applied for the determination of the quality model of web-based course and the weights of each indicator. Delphi technique was used for the evaluation of the rationality of every index weight. A standard evaluation system was finally formed. The evaluation system combined with topsis method was applied in the evaluation of the web-based course learning effect of the five-year system dental students. Results Through multiple screening and weighting, a multistage model of web-based courses’ evaluation was established, including 4 primary indexes, 7 secondary ones and 19 third ones. The general scores and ranks of the students were obtained from the comprehensive evaluation method and combined with topsis method. Conclusion This evaluation method includes the learning process and outcome, integrates the qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis, which assures the evaluation results to be objective and just.
