Training Activity Reports

The Training Activities Report (TAR) is the instrument used to determine the type and quantity of clinical activity and supervisory experiences students receive. On the TAR, students report hours and numbers of these activities. Each practicum trainee submits TAR data, each month, online. Students receive a personal password that provides access to their TAR data even after they have graduated from the Program. All TAR information is also required for internship, so students should keep copies of all TARs submitted for their own records. TAR data  should be entered daily.

General Supervision Forms

Evaluation of General Supervision, 6 months and 12 months, are the documents that help to inform the OCT about the student's experience of supervision. The focus is on impact of the supervisor's style, methods, focus, and quality of the training relationship. Students numerically rate these areas and provide elaborating qualitative comments. A general supervision evaluation is done twice each year-before the end of fall semester exams in December (6 Month) and before the end of the semester exams in June (12 Month). After a student completes the 6 month evaluation form, it is discussed with the supervisor, who signs the form prior to the student submitting it to the OCT. This evaluation must be completed before the end of fall semester exams in December. The 12 month evaluation is done differently in that the student completes and signs the 12 month form without the supervisor's review or signature. Thus, this end of the year evaluation process is similar to student evaluations in other SOPP courses. This evaluation must be completed before the end of summer session exams in June.

The OCT uses data on evaluation of supervisors in aggregate form to provide feedback to supervisors. The OCT will contact students for discussion when specific evaluations suggest focused follow-up. However, students should not wait for official evaluation times to discuss the supervision process with their supervisors. 

Rather, students should discuss positive feedback and concerns with their supervisors as they occur and seek consultation from the OCT, their Practice Tutorial Instructor, or advisor, in a timely manner, on any unresolved issues. It is considered part of the professional development aspect of practicum for the OCT and faculty to both provide support and modeling for the student in addressing concerns about supervision (and any other element of the practicum). The General Evaluation of Supervision form is designed as a summary tool and should not be used as the initial outlet for significant positive or negative feedback.
