360 Degree Evaluations for Didactic and Clinical Settings
Analyze evaluation data to gain insights about your program and clinical experiences.
Evaluations and Assessment

Evaluations during the didactic phase can be used as graded assessments, but are also often used to provide valuable feedback to all parties about their performance as formative assessments. Clinical evaluations often form the basis for students’ clinical grades while also providing valuable feedback to students and faculty about students’ performance in the clinical setting. 

1. Create

Build evaluation forms for courses, students, preceptors, clinical sites, instructors and more. Implement rubrics and question sets in order to create an evaluation form that provides detailed feedback for users. Both clinical and didactic phases are covered by eValuate’s evaluation system.

2. Assign

Form assignment has never been easier with the options available for automatic and manual assignment. Forms may be assigned based upon didactic and clinical schedules through eduSched or manually through the eValuate interface – simply select the evaluator and who or what is being evaluated. To ensure evaluation forms are sent out on time, notifications can be applied to be sent out to the evaluators.

3. Evaluate

Users may view what evaluations have been completed and need to be completed. Evaluators may even save their evaluations and come back to them later, increasing evaluation flexibility. To save and manage time, multiple evaluations forms can be completed at one time.

4. Analyze

Easy to access and distribute, the “Reports” interface provides comprehensive filters and tools in order to analyze evaluation data. Many different types of reports, such as summary reports, show significant breakdowns of feedback. Standards and EPAs may be aligned to specific rubric data in order to track student success. Quickly understand trends by analyzing report data.

Evaluation types
Popular Types of Evaluations
A wide variety of evaluation forms are supported by eMedley PA, but the following are the most commonly utilized:
Student Evaluating Course
Course evaluations offer administrators and instructors insight on the students’ experience in the course. This information can then be used to adjust and improve course content.
Student Evaluating Faculty
Faculty evaluations allow students to offer feedback which can faculty can use to determine what techniques students found most helpful and what they may want to adjust.
Faculty Evaluating Student
These evaluations offer an overall review and specific analysis of a student’s performance which can then be shared with students for a heightened understanding of their performance.
Student Self-Evaluations
These evaluations offer an opportunity for personal reflection, guiding students to consider their own strengths and weaknesses and building a valuable skill for professional growth.
Preceptor Evaluating Student
Easy and efficient. Reminders alert preceptors when evaluations are due and include a link directly to the evaluation, which can be accessed on computers or mobile devices.
Faculty Evaluating Clinical Site and Preceptor
Our mobile-friendly evaluations streamline site visits, allowing faculty to gain a better understanding of student experiences at the site.
Students Evaluating Preceptor
Allow students to provide clinical administrators insight into the rotation experience. Offer valuable feedback on strengths and areas for improvement to preceptors.
Students Evaluating Clinical Site
Gather information from parking availability to patient and procedure diversity. This data can inform faculty about their experience and can be added as “notes” to the clinical site in eduSched so that future students are more prepared.
Other Types of Evaluations
Student Evaluating Peers
These evaluations provide a structured process for students to critique and provide feedback to each other on their work. It also helps them develop the crucial professional skills for giving and receiving feedback among peers.
Student Evaluating Session
These evaluations encourage students to critically reflect on the what was taught during specific labs or lectures and judge if preparatory materials were helpful. The evaluations can be assigned so students fill them out right after a session or with other sessions at a later time.
Faculty Evaluating Session
Similar to the student session evaluation, these forms allow faculty to critically reflect on how a specific session (or sessions) went, providing them with guidance on what to keep in future sessions and what they may want to change. These can also be valuable to compare to student session evaluations to see how faculty and student perceptions compare.
Faculty Evaluating Course
These evaluations give the faculty’s perspective on how the course went and how it could be improved in the future. Using these along with Student Course Evaluations, Student Faculty Evaluations, and/or Faculty Student Evaluations allow administrators to see the full picture on the education being done in the classroom.
Faculty Peer & Self Evaluation
Evaluations are an important part of faculty development. Self evaluations offer an opportunity for reflection and peer evaluations offer an outsider’s perspective. Faculty members can then use these, along with Student Faculty Evaluations, to determine where personal growth is needed.
Preceptor Evaluating Faculty
Having preceptors evaluate program faculty helps improve the working relationship between your program and the preceptor. This data can then be used when retaining and recruiting new practitioners to work with your students.

Question Sets

Question Sets offer a place for administrators to add and store questions that can be used throughout multiple forms. Offering a parent-child structure, there can be questions, sub-questions, sub-sub questions, and so on.

With immediate access to previously used questions, administrators can strategically implement such question sets or even go in and update them for future use. This saves an immense amount of time when creating evaluations and provides a record of evaluation questions.

A Wide Variety of Question Types
We offer a wide variety of question types for every evaluation form. These forms can be used in all kinds of situations, from didactic course evaluations to evaluations during clinical rotations. In all situations, the forms are able to gather exactly the kind of information users need because of the extensive options when creating questions.

Evaluation Types

Schedule Evaluations
On-Demand Evaluations
Basic Evaluations
Basic Evaluations give administrators and those completing the evaluation form significant flexibility when it comes to setting an availability time window. By simply selecting who is to be completing the form and who or what is being evaluated, feedback is easily and accurately generated as forms are submitted.
Schedule Evaluations
As eValuate+ can be integrated with eduSched, schedule evaluations are sent out automatically based on the period and schedule records in eduSched. The system conveniently determines who will be filling out the evaluation and who or what will be evaluated, saving the administrators the time to send such evaluations out.
On-Demand Evaluations
Evaluators are given the ability to select who or what they are evaluating, allowing programs the opportunity to create evaluation forms to fit their unique needs. For Free Pick Evaluations, the administrator purely selects the time window, while the evaluator determines the rest.
Form Assignment
Evaluation Options
Evaluators can be anonymous to encourage honesty and accuracy in their evaluations.
Even after expiration, the evaluator may update evaluation forms.
