Abstract

Abstract A program has been developed for the Commodore 4032 which allows clinical dental students to test their diagnostic skills in the planning of orthodontic treatment. Case cards containing clincal photographs of selected patients provide the information required for the student to answer questions which are presented by the computer in multiple choice format. Where necessary pages of explanatory text may be included between questions, and the teacher can easily add new questions or modify existing questions or text as required. In three years of clinical use the program has proved to be extremely robust and popular with both students and dental practitioners attending refresher courses.
