The goal of dental education is to prepare future clinicians for a general dental practice. The curriculum delivery utilizes learning methodology that includes lectures, pre-clinical laboratories, problem-based learning and clinical internships.
The aim of our study was to show whether dental students are able to critically evaluate their work and whether their abilities to self-assess improved over the study.
The study examined whether there is a positive correlation between student self-evaluation scores and instructor scores in the second year of Preclinical Cariology and Prophylaxis of oral diseases, courses at the Dental Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, at the University “GoceDelcev”, Stip.
The results concerning self-evaluation among second year dental students in preclinical procedures who rated themselves regularly throughout the course year exhibited some expected outcomes.
The Criteria-based Self- Evaluation sheets provided the student with an orderly and systematic approach to evaluating their preclinical work.

Key words: dental education, assessment, self-evaluation
