Instructions for the Completion of the Final Evaluation of Student

Thank you for your supervision of our social work field student(s). Your role is critical and we cannot manage our program without you! Since we have made significant changes in our Field Program documentation requirements for this semester, this is a brief explanation of the new process:

  1. The student downloads and completes their Final Self-Evaluation form, being sure to include narrative comments in all rating categories describing their competency development.
  2. The student submits their completed Self-Evaluation to the Field Instructor.
  3. The Field Instructor completes the online final evaluation of the student’s performance, downloads the evaluation after completion, and prints a PDF version of the evaluation and reviews it with the student.

  4. The student and the Field Instructor sign the following three documents:
    • Final self-evaluation completed by the student
    • Final Field Instructor evaluation
    • Verification of Field Hours form
  5. The student uploads all three documents into the Canvas dropbox assignment folders.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is no way to close out of the evaluation mid-progress and save your answers. If you need to stop working on the evaluation and come back to it later on, you will need to minimize the window you are working on rather than closing out of it. Otherwise, you will have to start the evaluation over.

Thank you again for your partnership with HBSSW!
