Abstract

The psychometric properties of the Fieldwork Evaluation for the Occupational Therapist were examined, in particular the evidence supporting the independent use of the performance, attitude, and judgment scales to determine suitability for entry-level work. High levels of internal consistency were found on all of the scales and on the Evaluation as a whole, a reflection of the high correlations among items. A factor analysis was performed that suggested that the Evaluation primarily measures a single factor.
