Further on evaluation

The final assessment in the course is a comprehensive assessment of the teaching practice related to learning objectives, which includes associated practice reports and practice follow-up. "Pass" in the course presupposes approved compulsory activities and approved practice cards.

The practice teachers and follow-up teachers write reports, all of which must be approved in order to receive a "pass" in the course. If the student is in danger of being "failed" in the course, the student will receive a written notice about this. The notice must be sent no later than three weeks before the end of the practice period. If the student at the end of the practice period shows action or behavior that obviously does not provide a basis for passing the practice, the student may still have the grade not passed even if prior notice has not been given.

Students who have challenges in practice can be offered an extended practice period if we believe there is not a sufficient basis for assessment, despite the fact that all compulsory activities have been approved.

If students are absent from extended practice or do not contact the practice section, this will normally lead to not receiving a final assessment due to a lack of compulsory work requirements associated with the course.

If practice is considered unsuccessful, the student has access to a new practice period. New practice may require that mandatory activities related to practice must be re-implemented. The practice section makes individual assessments of the scope of new practice.

For a detailed description of the assessment in the course, see the year of study's study and teaching plan.
