 In the Department of Rehabilitation at Kumamoto Health Science University (Japan), rubrics are used to evaluate students' performance in clinical practice. The purpose of the present study is to explore the usefulness of rubrics by comparing this method to more conventional forms of evaluation. We sent an anonymous questionnaires to clinical supervisors at 32 primary training facilities and asked for their opinions on the rubric categories of “attitude toward clinical training”, “knowledge”, “communication”, and on the overall value of scoring rubrics, how rubrics compare to conventional forms of evaluation, and the time required to carry out a rubric-based evaluation. Responses were returned from 11 of the 32 facilities. Overall, the results showed that 8 facilities considered rubric-based evaluations “easy to carry out” or “somewhat easy to carry out”. At the remaining 3 facilities, supervisors described the use of rubrics as “somewhat difficult”. They expressed negative opinions that they had to get used to using rubrics. This suggests that although rubrics may be very useful for the evaluation of clinical training, it is important for those adopting this method to attend a workshop on the use of rubrics, and to share and revise the evaluation criteria.
