dc.description.abstractDespite the relatively long existence of various types of standardized visualization measures, only a few researches1 have been published which attempt to relate any of these measures to success in those areas of dental education that involve largely motor skills, such as those found in the dental technique laboratory and in the operative dental clinic.|It might be well to indicate, at this time, that the present study was intended to be essentially exploratory in character rather than definitive. Factors related to the character of the sampling groups used and the procedures involved in this study suggest that the data secured, the analyses made, and the conclusions drawn should be considered exploratory and tentative rather than final. Additional samples would be required, and improvements in analyses provided, before the trends found in this study could be adequately supported or rejected.|In this study it was the general purpose of the author to supplement current informations related to the value of visualization measures as indices of success in certain areas of dental education. More particularly, he hopes the study reported in this thesis will extend further the limited informations we now have relating to test success, on measures of the visual type, by dental students, and achievement in the dental technique laboratory and in the operative dental clinic.|In a still more specific manner it was the purpose of this study to determine the significant value of scores, obtained by dental students, on the Miller Survey of Object Visualization test, as well as the degree of success in drawing three-dimensional figures, as indices of aptitude to perform operations commonly experienced in the technique and in the operative dental clinic.en_US
