Creating a New Evaluation

APTA Clinical Performance Instruments allows ACCEs/DCEs/Program Staff users to create APTA Clinical Performance Instruments evaluations. To create an APTA Clinical Performance Instruments evaluation:

  1. Navigate to the Eval Setup tab and click New Evaluation.

  2. Enter a name for your APTA Clinical Performance Instruments in the Evaluation Name field (e.g., Clinical Experience II – Class of 2016).
  3. From the drop-down, select the Academic Year in which the evaluation occurs.
  4. From the drop-down, select the name of your Academic Program. 
  5. Select the appropriate Experience Type.
    • If your students must complete four evaluations in order to graduate, they are listed as follows:
       

      Evaluation Name

      Experience Type

      Evaluation I

      First

      Evaluation II

      Intermediate

      Evaluation III

      Intermediate

      Evaluation IV

      Final


       
  6. Select the appropriate Period for your APTA Clinical Performance Instruments evaluation (i.e., Mid-Term and Final or Final Only).
  7. Click Create to return to the Evaluation List on the Eval Setup tab.
  8. Once you return to the Evaluation List on the Eval Setup tab, select your newly created Evaluation Name. This takes you to the assignment pairing page.
  9. Drag a student from the column on the left into the "Drop a Student Here" area. Use the Year filter to select the appropriate cohort of students.
  10. The Clinical Instructor section is sorted using an alphabetized drop-down that corresponds with the name of your site. The default display is "A." Select the appropriate letter from the drop-down to display the site associated with the CI.
    • Note: You can also type the CI’s first name, last name, or zip code and click Search to view a list of the sites that contain that name or zip code. Additionally, you can search by the Site Name (full or partial name) to locate the CIs for that site.
  11. Click the Magnifying Glass to open a list of CIs.
  12. Drag the CI's name from the column on the left into the "Drop Instructors Here" area. If you have multiple CIs evaluating a student, you can drop multiple CIs into the same Instructors box as long as they are all listed at the same site. All clinical instructors have access to the same APTA Clinical Performance Instruments using their own login credentials.
    • Note: if you do not know who the CI is, drag the "To Be Determined" name to the "Drop Instructors Here" area. Once the CI is known, drop the name of the CI on top of the "To Be Determined" CI name.
  13. Click Add New at the top of the middle column to make a new pairing. Remember to click Save All regularly to avoid losing work.
  14. Repeat the previous steps as necessary to pair all your students with their corresponding CIs.
  15. When you are finished pairing your students, click Edit to open your APTA Clinical Performance Instruments. Note the following:
