Professional behaviors (PB) represent ten elements assessed in student physical therapist clinical practice. Classroom emphasis is on the didactic knowledge; refining PB are needed for successful clinical practice. ExamSoft rubrics allow for the assessment of PB across the curriculum. The PB are: critical thinking, communication, problem solving, interpersonal skills, responsibility, professionalism, use of constructive feedback, effective use of time and resources, stress management, and commitment to learning. Across the curriculum, rubrics are used for performance grading (practical examinations, skill checks, presentations), are assigned appropriate categories in ExamSoft. Reports track progress, identify problem areas, and target methods for improvement with each student. Weaknesses in PB can be identified in each student. During the student advisement process, the findings are discussed. Goals are set by the student and their advisor to help the student improve in these areas. ExamSoft enhances the advisement process: it allows faculty to identify student weaknesses in PB, and facilitates improvement. Students recognize their need to improve PB, a key to good clinical practice as future physical therapists.
