ZENTENO HOFER, Claudia; CONSTENLA NUNEZ, Jaime  y  ARAYA GOZALVO, Javier. Validation of degree exam in the carrier of Dentistry. Educ Med Super [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.1, pp.78-92. ISSN 0864-2141.

Dentistry carrier, as a carrier of health area, in San Sebastian University, its insert in a curriculum oriented in competences. For this reason one of the most used methodologies its problem-based learning (PBL), since first year of the carrier, increasing its use in the last years. In the other hand, at final years of the carrier it was necessary to establish some type of evaluation capable of integrate all knowledge of the students, which could be procedural, conceptual or attitudinal, congruent with the methodology used. These made us to choose an instrument representative of the curriculum based on competences and based on PBL methodology for the students, and it was considered the triple jump test o Tri-Partite Problem Solving Exercise (TRIPSE), as an appropriate test for the goals previously mentioned. This type of evaluation has not been used as a final exam or degree in a carrier of the health area in Chile, this made it an innovator process. The objective of this intervention was to determine the validity of TRIPSE, as a degree exam of Dentistry carrier and at the same time demonstrate its objectivity and congruence. The results were determinants to validate this type of evaluation as a genuine alternative for the teaching and learning model, also appropriate, objective and congruent.

Palabras clave : evaluation; constructivism; TRIPSE; PBL; degree exam.
