evaluation helps students...
evaluation helps preceptors...
their own knowledge
strengths and weaknesses
- make continual
adjustments to performance
and adjust their teaching
students' progress and achievement
productive working and learning relationships with learners
interest in and concern for the learner
Providing formative evaluation also encourages interaction between
preceptors and learners, helps to build a productive working and learning
relationship between the two, and is a means for expressing interest
in and concern for the progress and development of the learner.
