Save Time By Frequently Assessing Learners
Rather than waiting until you need to write the final evaluation of a learner's time in your clinic, consider taking a little time at the end of each day or week to briefly assess the learner's progress at your clinic. Not only will this provide you with the specific information you will likely need later for the final evaluation, but it will also include numerous, qualitative examples of a learner's performance.
As you reflect on a learner's progress, write detailed comments with relative frequency. Many learners and other faculty will find your written comments more helpful than a Likert scale rating, as comments provide specific details regarding the learner's gaps and growth. When possible, write your observations in the sponsoring institution's evaluation forms, as this will help you focus on areas they find most beneficial to a learner's progress.
