Online Evaluation Instructions

Please follow these instructions when completing your online evaluation of your Pediatric Clerkship students. We will be using the attached form for all clinical evaluations. It will be sent to you via New Innovations for AY 21-22. Please note that this form does not have a Final Assessment ( Honors, HP and P etc.) .

The Faculty Clinical Evaluations will be converted to grades using the following Rubric:

 Numeric Grade
1. All components Competent (C) and 7 or more Outstanding (O)100
2. All components C and 5-6 components O95
3. All components C and 3-4 components O93
4. All components C and 1-2 components O90
5. All components C (Anchor)85
6. One component with Needs Improvement (NI), and all other components C80
7. Two components with NI and all other components C75
8. Three components NI and all other components C70
9. *Four components with NI and all other components C65
10. One component with NI, one or more components with O, and the rest competent85
11. Two components with NI, one or more components O, and the rest competent80

*Please note that if you assign a student with four (4) needs improvements , that will be considered a Fail of the clinical assignment. This will trigger an automatic review of all clinical evaluations by the Undergraduate Medical Education Committee of Pediatrics and a final Grade for the overall Clinical Component will be assigned based on the students overall performance/your comments over the 6 weeks. If you feel a student is performing poorly, please provide the student with detailed feedback. Also please inform Melissa Smith-Phillips and myself, so that we can provide additional feedback. If a student gets 4 or more NI, Please make sure to write detailed comments about the students’ performance in the feedback area.

As we are assigning Honors , HP etc., you are no longer required to do Above and Beyond Nominations for the AY21-22.

If you have any questions regarding this evaluation form and grading, please email or call me.
