Clinical courses are assigned either a numerical grade or Credit/No Credit, depending on the course.
Each student receives a clinical performance evaluation from the instructor at midterm and at the end of the quarter. The evaluation measures the student's performance of the course objectives, outlines strengths and weaknesses, and makes appropriate recommendations for improvement if necessary. The student is asked to prepare a self-evaluation; this self-evaluation is incorporated into the performance evaluation prepared by the instructor. Student and instructor discuss the evaluation and sign it; the original is sent to Academic Services to be placed into the student's academic file.
Any concerns about the student's performance and conduct may be discussed during the evaluation meetings. The instructor may set-up special guidelines and objectives to assist the student in meeting course requirements. Students in danger of failing the course will receive a warning card.
