Evaluating Student Fitness

As part of an ongoing performance-based assessment process, students are evaluated with respect to academic skills, practice competencies, and professional/ethical conduct. Student fitness and performance are evaluated throughout the Program by faculty members, advisors, and supervisors.

The criteria used by the faculty to make professional judgments include course instructor evaluations of student’s performance on academic and simulated practice requirements, field supervisor evaluations of student’s performance in practicum and internship situations, and student adherence to the profession’s codes of ethics. Students who are not making satisfactory progress or who are not meeting program standards may be asked to complete an improvement program and, if necessary, to withdraw from the program.
