Student Practicum Evaluations


At the end of each semester, practicum instructors complete evaluations for the students they have supervised that term. These evaluations are implemented using an online survey tool. In general, the procedure is:

  1. The practicum instructor receives an email with a link to each student's evaluation.
  2. The practicum instructor completes the evaluation.
  3. The practicum instructor and student receive email summaries of the evaluation; the practicum instructor's email includes a link to revise the evaluation if needed.
  4. The practicum instructor and student meet and review the evaluation.
  5. The student completes a survey acknowledging review of the evaluation with the practicum instructor.
  6. A final PDF summary report of the evaluation is emailed to the instructor, student, advisor, and the Office of Practicum Learning.

Evaluation forms vary by year of practice and specialization area. To preview the contents of the forms, see the following:
