Abstract
  • A dilemma occurs when occupational therapy students earn perfect scores on level I fieldwork assessments, but fail future level II fieldwork experiences. The purpose of this study was to determine differences in level I fieldwork assessment scores, level II fieldwork assessment scores, Occupational Therapy Knowledge Exam (OTKE) competency scores, student demographics, and level I fieldwork factors in 21 Masters of Occupational Therapy (MOT) and 52 Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) students from a private Midwestern university. Methods included parametric and non-parametric testing to determine these differences with no regression modeling warranted based on limited results. Results revealed statistically significant differences (p < .05) between two OTKE domains and tasks and one-week level I fieldwork assessment scores. Future research should address the psychometric development of level I fieldwork evaluation tools to ensure that these instruments are truly measuring clinical skills and professionalism criterion as intended. Implications of this study focus on expanding the scholarly agenda of the academic fieldwork coordinator to better understand the science of fieldwork education measurement, particularly during early experiential learning such as level I fieldwork. These actions then facilitate better identification for students at risk for level II fieldwork failure and validate better skill competence to provide high quality and value-based care by future occupational therapy practitioners.
