    Abstract

    Evidence-based evaluation instruments for course units offer academics quality data, useful for continual improvement. Placement units are not traditional course units and may require a specific evaluation instrument, of which none seem available. This study commenced the development of a placement evaluation instrument supported by a relevant learning framework. The qualitative study was conducted (n=56) and examined the views of placement stakeholders regarding what attributes of the placement experience should be evaluated. Data were thematically analyzed, leading to a 25 item evaluation instrument. This instrument can be completed by students to evaluate and improve placement experiences and outcomes.
