Grading for Clinical Education

The Academic Coordinator for Clinical Education (ACCE) has responsibility for the final assignment of grades for clinical education courses. Clinical education courses are graded Pass or Fail.

PT 720: CLINICAL EDUCATION 1, PT 740: CLINICAL EDUCATION 2

The ACCE will determine a final grade based on the grading criteria outlined in the course syllabus. This grade will be based on clinical instructor ratings of student professional behaviors, completion of class assignments, and class attendance and participation.

PT 760: CLINICAL EDUCATION 3, PT 780: CLINICAL EDUCATION 4

The ACCE will determine the course grade based on a review of the student’s and CI’s ratings and comments on the APTA Clinical Performance Instrument. When necessary, the ACCE may solicit clarifying comments from the CI regarding his/her professional judgment of the student’s strengths, weaknesses, ability to meet entry-level performance expectations, and potential for continued success.
