Students Experiencing Difficulties with Clinical Placements Clinical Evaluations:Students are evaluated during each clinical course bytheir instructor with the Clinical Evaluation of Student tool. For ALL graded and pass/fail clinical courses, students must attain 80% on this evaluation in order to pass the course. For numerically graded clinical courses, students will be assigned a numerical grade based on their performance on the tool.For graded Clinical Practice 1 courses, students must receive ‘Meets Expectation with Moderate Assistance’ on 80% of the scored items. For Clinical Practice 2 courses, students must receive ‘Meets Expectation with Minimal Assistance’ on 80% of the scored items. The student’s percentage score will be the assigned grade for evaluation, with the minimum requirement of 80% to pass. Items marked as 'N/A or no opportunity to observe' will not be calculated in the student's raw score. For pass/fail practicum courses, the student must achieve 80% of the scored items as 'meets expectation' in order to pass the course.If the student fails to attain an 80% on the evaluation at the prescribed level of the course, the instructor may assign additional activities and/or additionalclinical hours prior to a reevaluation. The student will have a one-time opportunity to be re-evaluated. A second faculty member will be present during the clinical performance retake.
