Diagnostic Challenge: Facilitator Evaluation: Instructions and
Just a reminder, please beware of SCORE INFLATION on your DC1
In general the DC1 scores are and probably SHOULD BE lower than DC2.
Please be constructive and try to give the students specific goals/areas of
improvement to work on in DC2. There probably shouldn't be any perfect or
near perfect scores for DC1.
We help students best by identifying areas where they can improve, not by
just patting them on the back. DC2 is a place where we
should expect to see better performances and that is facilitated by
providing constructive criticism and specific input in DC1.
Whatever you do, please use the Exceeds Expectations sparingly. If students
are truly exceeding expectations on very many categories, especially on the
first DC, I would argue that our expectations are not very high. We want to
set the bar high so that they might truly excel in the future.

student's Peer Evaluations of each other â€“ from Rachel
Halsey or Steve:
You may not have the peer evaluations yet, so just proceed on the
assumption that students will receive all 5 peer points. In other
words, just enter 5 points in your evaluation. We will deduct these points
if we learn of a problem later. It is ideal of course, to be able to look
through the peer comments before the DC Group meets to debrief so you can
discuss any identified problems.
We will try to make sure we have DC evaluations from ALL the
students in your groups. If we're missing any, we may ask you to email the
offending student and request he/she turn one in ASAP. Threaten them if
necessary â€“ a completed evaluation is required.
Please try to provide some
specific comments in
each category (as much as you can manage) â€“ things that might be
helpful in the future. Our students are hungry for specific feedback.
After you mark the boxes and write some comments, give a
score in each category (see below). The total facilitator + client points = 45,
plus 5 points from peers = 50 points total.

Enter a score based
on the client's evaluation form if you
have it. Otherwise, proceed by
initially assuming the students will
receive all the points and enter 5.
If you have it,
insert the client's completed evaluation
into the final copy that will be
returned to the students - or attach it
to the email you send to Steve and

proceed by just entering 5 and figuring
this will be correct. If we learn
of a problem later, we will just deduct

you can print off a single evaluation
for the entire clinic.
If you have the peer
evaluations and see that > 50% of the
clinic members rate a student as Needs
Improvement or Unsatisfactory, you
should talk with Steve and your
co-facilitator. Typically it's all or
none (5 or 0) points, but this is
subject to further thought and
If a student in the
clinic is receiving fewer points than
his/her team mates, print off a separate
evaluation for this student and leave
the student's name off the group form.
TOTAL SCORE: Form Lizard will automatically
add up your scores.
Once you have completed the online form, please email
Rachel Halsey that the evaluation is
complete. The DC is worth 50 points total.
Our goal is to return ALL evaluations on the same day at <10
working days after the end of the exercise.
