Title:
Evaluation in the Preceptorship Experience: A Critical Conversation
Author(s):

Abstract:
Evaluation may be described as "a systematic process by which the worth or value of something, in this case, teaching and learning, is judged." (Bastable, 2003, p. 494). Evaluation reflects the values and beliefs of the participants involved (preceptor, student and faculty). Evaluation viewed as an objective interpretation of judgments about performance derived from criteria totally external to the evaluator is somewhat of a misconception. Evaluation is invariably subjective as it involves humans possessing individual assumptions influencing the process. All involved must examine the values, beliefs, attitudes, biases, and prejudices they bring to the evaluation process. While the evaluation process cannot be objective, it can be fair. Fairness should be the goal. Fairness can be fostered through: critical reflection on the part of the faculty, preceptor and student, clarification of learning objectives designed for the preceptorship experience and establishment of a supportive climate in which the evaluation process occurs. The authors will explore the evaluation process specifically in the preceptorship experience. They will discuss ways in which faculty, preceptors and students can critically reflect upon the assumptions they bring to influence that process and examine strategies to ensure a fair and equitable process.
