|Subject Overview:||In this placement, the supervisor in conjunction with the Practicum Placement Co-ordinator offers a designed set of training experiences to the student. The training experience, undertaken with the supervisor, is built upon the activities observed in Practicum 1. The practicum placement is generally in the same location as Practicum 1. The experiences are determined by the opportunities which arise naturally in the field. The involvement of the student is judged by the supervisor. Generally, the student visits a number of educational sites; observes and conducts assessment, interviews, consultations; attends meetings, creates individual behavioural progress plans and reports upon their outcomes where appropriate. The placement provides the opportunity to carry out the tasks of an educational psychologist under supervision. Opportunities to receive feedback are built into the task design. There are up to three lectures covering the issues of ethics, working with allied professionals and contemporary issues in educational practice.|
|Assessment:||Students are required to successfully complete the formal requirements of the placements including attendance for the required number of days. Assessment occurs on a continuous basis throughout the placement process. A combination of measures is applied to gain an understanding of the student's progress which include: completion of a log book including an account of a prescribed task derived directly from the field placement (approximately 1,500 words; 30 per cent); formal assessment by the field supervisor (70 per cent).|
