APPE Evaluation/Promotion Status

APPE Evaluation

1. Evaluation of the student’s performance is conducted by the preceptor responsible for supervising the student during the APPE. Preceptors determine the competency level of the student for each of the outcomes.

2. The School determines the grade of each APPE taking into account the evaluation provided by the preceptor and satisfactory completion of activities as required. Students will be graded as PAS (pass) or FAL (fail).

3. Students who conduct themselves in a manner (such as violation of the Student Code of Conduct) which causes them to be terminated from an APPE site will be assigned a grade of FAL (fail) for that APPE and may be required to withdraw from the program.

Promotion Status

1. Normally, if a student fails an APPE course, the Committee on Undergraduate Studies may permit the student to continue to the student’s next scheduled APPE course and require the student to repeat the failed course at a later date. This may extend the duration of the student’s program.

2. A student is permitted to repeat only one APPE course. A student who fails an APPE course on a second attempt will be required to withdraw from the program.

3. If a failed grade is received in more than one APPE course, the student will be required to withdraw from the program.
