Abstract

BACKGROUND: In 2009 the ISPO team conducted an analysis of the student performance at Pakistan Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Sciences (PIPOS) and concluded the situation 'unsatisfactory'. This study aims to explore the opinions of the current students regarding the nature of the classroom learning climate at PIPOS. METHODS: This survey was carried out in 2010 at PIPOS, Peshawar. The data was collected on a self adapted questionnaire based on a literature review. It was distributed among the 48 students. The data was considered non-parametric categorical, hence contingency table statistics is applied in descriptive format. The statistics were analysed at 95% CI. RESULTS: The replies reveal that the variables tested were imperative and it was appalling that the majority went for second score 'Fair' while fewer were in grade 'Good'. CONCLUSION: PIPOS stands low in the ISPO 2010 report, with a high student failure rate due to issues related to curriculum and teaching methodology. There is a lot to improve relating the students' level up to the international standards.
