Here are some tips to help you with completing the midterm evaluation for Intermediate 1 Fieldwork:
GETTING A HEAD START!
- Take time to review the evaluation and the minimum placement expectations that you have set for each competency. This will help you to refresh your memory on areas that you are evaluating for midterm. This will also help to target your observations and begin to gather examples of how your student is doing.
- In addition to direct observation, consider other evaluation strategies such as:
o Talking through a client session with your student,
o Reviewing written documentation,
o Gathering perspectives of team members and OT colleagues.
EVALUATION OF COMPETENCIES:
- Please rate your student on each competency using the drop-down arrow provided.
- Please remember that for Intermediate 1 you are to score a maximum of 6 at midterm and final.
- Consider your student's performance in relation to:
- your minimum placement expectations ( where you expect your student to be at the end of Intermediate 1 fieldwork)
- CBFE competency descriptors
- Use the comment section to provide examples of how your student is meeting expectations, strengths, and areas for improvement.
o Intermediate 1 & Intermediate 2 fieldwork both fall under Level 2 on the CBFE.
o A rating of 6 indicates mastery of Level 2 and ready to transition to Level 3 (Advanced). For Intermediate 1, we would not expect students to reach a rating of 6, as this would mean that they are ready to transition to Level 3 (Advanced fieldwork). It is possible that your student may be performing at a 6 by the end of Intermediate 1, however, it is not expected. Your students still have another placement (Intermediate 2) to work towards achieving mastery of Level 2!
o By the end of Intermediate 1, we would expect students to reach a 5 in order to meet expectations, although there may be some variation across competencies. *Students do not need to have 5’s in all competencies in order to pass their Intermediate 1 placement.
o *Determination of a pass or fail by the university is based on the average of the competency marks and comments at final.
o Please do not rate your student above a 6 for Intermediate 1. If your student seems exceptional, please feel free to use the comment section to indicate this.
o Please do not struggle with the electronic form! If you are having issues, you can use a paper copy and email us a scan of the document at the end of the placement.
EVALUATION OF STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
- Review and evaluate each objective by placing a vertical line on The Learning Objective Rating Scale.
o Hover over the dot on the scale; a hand will appear to allow you to choose the rating.
- You can copy and paste your student’s learning objective information into the evaluation on the student-learning objective page. This will help provide some context to your evaluation.
- The student-learning objective page will
primarily contain student information that you have copied and
pasted. Feel free to use the “validation” column to provide feedback
about your student’s progress with learning objectives. You may also use
the comment section to provide feedback about student learning objectives.
- What if you need to edit your rating?
Hover over the line above the dot you
selected. Once the hand appears, and it is “sitting” on the line, you can click
- What if your student has more than one learning objective for the same competency? How do you provide a rating in this situation?
o In this case, you can provide a rating that captures an “overall picture” or an average of your student’s progress in meeting their learning objectives.
student may carry forward objectives not completed into academics or
- Reminder: Student learning objectives are not included in the overall score and do not determine pass or fail.
BONUS TIP: Consider emailing the evaluation to your student prior to your evaluation meeting to allow time to “digest” everything.
please reach out if you have any question or concerns :-)
