Title Education, Dentistry and Social Work: Interactive and continuous assessment for development of professional competence

English abstract
This project uses assessment to develop students’ professional competence during their studies for qualification as social workers, teachers and dentists in a culturally heterogeneous society. Difficulties of uniting theory and practise are solved through ‘simulated’ authentic situations. The students describe critical professional situations, which are also described by experts. The students compare their analysis and interpretations with those of the experts, in self-assessment, group discussion and examination. The students describe, analyse, act and compare, and then articulate their need to extend their competence. The project is a useful model to connect theory and practice. In essence the model is common, but adjusted to the different courses of study and the varying requirements of the professions.
