Bloomsburg University Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology is committed to preparing clinicians who are ready to enter the workplace. The process of learning the necessary skills for this outcome may vary student by student. The purpose of remediation is to provide students with opportunities to demonstrate knowledge and skills in both academic and clinical areas. Remediation is intended to facilitate student success and assist with progress toward meeting degree requirements.
Both summative (final, at the conclusion of a course/program) and formative (during, periodically throughout a course/program) assessment are used in evaluating students’ progress. Students whose academic or clinical performance falls below graduate expectations will be provided with remediation opportunities as part of formative assessment.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of remediation opportunities to avoid academic consequences such as course repeats or recommendations for dismissal from the program. Remediation may include, but is not limited to a clinical skills development plan, revision or completion of equivalent academic coursework, re-examination, or other methods as stipulated by instructional faculty and, where necessary, in conjunction with clinical staff. Students requiring remediation will complete and sign a remediation plan form which will be retained in their academic file. Remediation plans may be developed by faculty and/or clinical supervisors together with students.
