The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate the students appearing for university examination in Orthodontic dentistry. A total of 150 students enrolled in this study from two consecutive academic sessions. In Group I (2015-2016) final year graduate students of 75 students received conventional class room lectures; group II (2016-2017) final year graduate students of 75 students received flipped class room lectures. The curriculums for both the groups were approved from the department of Orthodontic Dentistry, Saveetha Dental College and Committee Members for Education, Saveetha University. At the end of each academic year marks scored out of 200 marks were obtained and subjected to statistical analysis. All the students cleared the university examination held at respective academic years for both the groups. The mean marks obtained for CCR group was 130.93 ± 9.12 and for FCR group was 150.35 ± 10.93.). Independent samples test revealed there is highly significant difference seen (p <0.01). In the recent year it was found that the flipped class system has gained a significant attention amongst all educators. The characteristic feature of flipped class system is that in flipped class they have videos & clipping related to the subject. The students will be given the videos of the classes on the previous day of the class so that they can go through it & will have a better idea regarding the topic & it will even motivate them to even search & know better of the topic. The only point is such that teachers have to spend a bit more extra time is creating the video’s related to the topics.
