Synopsis, & Evaluation

Synopsis, & Evaluation

 
During the practicum you are expected to keep a diary of your experiences–the things you
observe, the duties you perform, and other learning experiences. It is suggested that you make
brief reminder notes during your shift, and write them up more formally after work. The notebook
should provide a broad picture of your experience.
Part II: Synopsis Value: 15%

Once your practicum assignment is complete you are required to write a formal synopsis of the
diary. This synopsis should describe your experience in general, but should focus on at least three
(3) specific areas in considerable detail. A list of sample areas follows; choose three that have
particular interest for you and write about them in detail. Use information gained during the
placement, plus examples from agency life, and attach supporting or illustrating documents from
the agency. Your synopsis must be a minimum of five pages in length (typed and double-spaced),
not including title page and attachments. Outside references are not required, but if used, must be
properly referenced. Note that the synopsis should not be a repetition of what you recorded
in your diary. It should be a thoughtful integration of ideas, thoughts, and experiences
related to the practicum experience. A list of areas you may choose to address in your synopsis
follows; use it as a guideline only.
Module 3- 4
Your synopsis should be completed as soon as possible after you complete the placement, while
the information is fresh in your mind. Both the synopsis and your notebook must be sent to the
practicum coordinator.

Marks will be awarded based on content, completeness, extent and accuracy of observation,
analysis, and grammar and spelling.

Part III: Evaluation Value: 5%

It is important to evaluate the practicum experience from your perspective. Therefore, you are
required to submit a narrative evaluation of your experience. This should describe what you liked
about the practicum, what you did not like, what could be changed to make it better, how you
gained from the experience, and so on.

The evaluation should be a maximum of one page in length. The practicum coordinator will
remove and retain this page. The information may be used to give feedback (anonymously) to
placement agencies so that placements may be constantly improved.
