You will need to formally complete the SPEF-R© for the first time at the halfway point of your student's practice placement

This formative evaluation process should:

  • Provide sufficient information to your student to enable him to enhance his practice prior to the final summative evaluation.
  • Help identify necessary additional experiences for the remainder of the placement.

This section of the module provides comprehensive information to help you achieve these outcomes.

Specifically it includes:

  • an overview of the rating scale
  • important considerations when applying the scale
  • recording halfway feedback and recommendations
  • determining a formative result of pass or fail for individual learning objectives and for the evaluation overall
  • providing summary feedback at halfway
  • what the student may contribute - self evaluation and student feedback
  • discussing the evaluation with your student
  • using the halfway evaluation to plan
  • what to do if concerns exist
