The Hawai‘i Rehabilitation Counseling program (HRC) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM) prepares graduate students to become successful practitioners and administrators in the field of vocational rehabilitation. This 48-credit distance education program leads to a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology & Rehabilitation Science, with a specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling. The HRC Program includes three clinical courses (Practicum, Internship I, and Internship II) that prepare students for participation in the field of vocational rehabilitation counseling. Although a form has been used in the past to assess students’ performance in these courses, the current program director found that the assessment form did not tie directly to accreditation standards and specific student learning outcomes. This poster reflects the process used to evaluate current practices; involve current teaching faculty and community site supervisors to review, revise, and refine the program map, student learning outcomes, and present student evaluation form; and through this process, develop an applicable and relevant clinical student evaluation form. The assessment process and subsequent product will enable students to be more appropriately evaluated in their clinical courses. by Kathryn Yamamoto
