Description: Practicums in AEFIS allow faculty and/or internship supervisors to evaluate students on a survey-like instrument which uses the relationship created on the course/co-curricular section enrollment screen between instructor and student to generate custom forms for each student instructor (or student, if using a student form as well). To start using the Practicum solution, first you must build the templates used for the faculty/supervisor evaluation and the student self-evaluation (if applicable).
