Upon completion of Level I and Level II fieldwork it is the student's responsibility to turn in the required assignments and evaluation forms. An evaluation of the student's performance and an evaluation of the fieldwork experience are completed for each rotation. Both evaluations are to be completed and signed by both the supervising therapist and the fieldwork student and submitted online or turned in on the final day of the rotation in order pass this course. A copy should be maintained by the student and the fieldwork educator.
Level II B fieldwork students return to campus as part of their course to attend the NBCOT Exam Prep Course and to participate in Completion Day. The intent of Completion Day is to complete paperwork required for graduation. Representatives from the Financial Aid and Registrar's offices will meet with students and provide information needed for graduation.
Completion Day is also intended to facilitate sending the necessary forms from the University to the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) and the State of Illinois to apply for the NBCOT exam and Illinois licensure. These steps will be covered in detail on Completion Day.
