ADEA PASS® Evaluators

There are three types of evaluations for ADEA PASS: the ETS Personal Potential Index® (ETS PPI), the Professional Evaluation (PEF) and Institution Evaluation (IEF).

ETS Personal Potential Index

ADEA PASS requires the completion of an ETS PPI for each applicant.The report must include three to five individual evaluators. The applicant must enter the contact information for ETS PPI evaluators inside the ADEA PASS application account; evaluators will then receive instructions by email to access to the online form. 

Professional Evaluation

The ADEA PASS Professional Evaluation Form (PEF) is optional for applicants. If a PEF is requested, applicants are encouraged to select the eForm option. A valid email address is required for an evaluator to utilize eForms; the evaluator's email address must be entered by the applicant within her or his ADEA PASS application account.

Each advanced discipline has ascertained the important qualities they seek in successful applicants. To learn more about attributes considered most important by discipline, click here.

Institution Evaluation

All U.S. dental schools use the eForm medium to submit the required Institution Evaluation Form (IEF) for current students and graduates applying to postdoctoral programs through ADEA PASS. Dental schools outside the United States may choose to do so as well by contacting ADEA PASS to establish an institution account. Applicants will also have to utilize the paper form that will only become available after the IEF has been addedto his or her ADEA PASS application checklist.

If your dental school has recently had a change of dean or the designated contact official for the Institution Evaluation Form, please submit an update to ADEA PASS and we will change our records. If your dental school does not currently participate in ADEA PASS eForms you may register today.
