22  I. Access, use, and evaluate reliable health resources  II. Uses knowledge of learning styles  III. Demonstrates teaching skills  VI. Knows how and where to refer clients  VII. Demonstrates culture, gender, and racial sensitivity  Would you consider hiring?

23

24  Agency supervisors ◦ Generous evaluators ◦ Biased; self-fulfilling prophecy ◦ Misinterpret evaluation items ◦ Different interpretations of indicators across diverse sites  Students ◦ Self-select placements in areas of strength ◦ Maturity ◦ Self-select major

25  Faculty ◦ Number of course instructors ◦ Easy vs. more rigorous graders  Courses ◦ Upper-level vs. lower-level abilities ◦ Cumulative GPA includes transferred grades

26  Not all NCHEC competencies represented on instrument  Instrument inconsistent in ability to capture qualities of interest  Selected NCHEC indicators may reflect other or >1 competency

27

28  Not all courses relate to success in internship measures  Not all competencies relate to success in courses  Despite quantity of significant correlations, no strong correlations emerged

29  Professionals & Agencies ◦ Agencies should continue to evaluate transcripts as part of the hiring process in health education.  Academic Institutions ◦ Professional preparation programs may need to adapt to address NCHEC competencies in a practical way. ◦ Internship experiences should complement other health education experiences – including the classroom.

30  Share evaluation with preceptors, faculty colleagues and students  Consider internship assessment tools that are more reflective of NCHEC  Cultivate preceptor understanding of program, NCHEC, etc.  Communicate to students that doing well can help to excel as health educator  Communicate to students that grades are NOT everything  Encourage faculty to incorporate NCHEC-related activities in coursework
