Designer Audits for Selective Admission Programs Presented by: Sharlene Allen September 2008
How it Began Worked with Dental Dept. to develop a DARS audit for use in selecting Dental Hygiene students –Typically 200+ applicants for 18 openings Used the first time for selection of 2007-08 admits Director stated the process previously took numerous people several weeks to complete (estimate was at least three solid working days) Using the audit, the review process was completed in about three hours
More Requests Added an audit for selection of Dental Assisting students –This was used Spring 2008 to select 2008-09 admits Currently finalizing an audit for selection of students within the Nursing Dept. –Will be customized for criteria of each program –Includes some different criteria than Dental Hygiene audit –Test run will be within the next month to select Summer admits Also working on an audit for selection of Radiologic Technology students
Dental Hygiene Audit Criteria Looks for a list of 11 courses Removes all unacceptable grades, including anything below a C (to match program requirement) Repeated courses - always accepts the better grade Some courses will allow substitutes if the substitute course had a better grade –e.g., Looks for ENGL1101, but if ENGL1102 was completed and has better grade, can use for application purposes –Note this is for selection purposes only; the program requirements remain the same Checks for completion of developmental reading, writing and math requirements
