Criteria for Judging

 

Two NPBR members (NPBR appointed members) will make a selection from submitted abstracts resulting in maximum three nominations for the best poster and three for the best oral presentation. Candidates will be evaluated during their official abstract presentation scheduled by IADR GHQ.  Those presentations will be inspected by the two network members (NPBR officers or appointed members) at the IADR General Session.  The criteria for judging the presentations are as listed below. Each category is ranked on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the highest.

  1. Research design: Does it fit the aims/research questions and was it conducted appropriately?
  2. Analysis: Are the techniques appropriate and used correctly?
  3. Conclusions: Are they justified/supported by the results?
  4. Clinical Relevance for the practitioner: How do the findings affect dental oral health care? Can the findings be applied into general practice settings?
  5. Presentation: Did the presenter communicate clearly? Did the slides/poster clearly communicate the findings? Did the presenter clearly answer the questions?
