The student will not be expected to perform a complete sonographic examination until they have received appropriate instruction for that examination. N/A is Not Applicable or Not Observed and is not used in grade calculations.
Evaluate each area of performance (Poor = 1, Good = 5, Excellent = 10). For scores of less than 7, the instructor should identify the item by number and give a brief explanation to help the student improve on that item. ©2005 All rights reserved.
