Practicum Student Evaluation of Host Site Form

Each student is required to complete a minimum total of 270 hours of practicum for graduation. This is typically broken into two experiences; one at 90 hours and the other totaling 180 hours. The student receives academic credit for practicum and a grade of pass/fail. The grade is based upon completion of the required hours, a presentation of their practicum work, completion of work in their practicum seminar, and your evaluation.

Thank you again for providing this opportunity. Because your evaluation is required for the student to receive their grade, please complete this form immediately after completion of the practicum

NOTE: Because this practicum is a learning experience for the student, this evaluation is not confidential. This evaluation must be reviewed with the student prior to submission. The student will have access to this evaluation, and it will become part of their academic file.
