Abstract This study tested the effects of providing lists of students' clinical competencies to practicum supervisors. Subjects were 29 supervisor/student pairs who were randomly assigned to experimental and control conditions. Experimental group subjects received a clinical practicum competencies list relevant to the experiences level of their current students. Impact of the lists on students' evaluations was measured with W-PACC scores. Impact on subjects' satisfaction with practicum experience was measured with a 16-item questionnaire. Results indicated that clinical competencies lists did not reduce variance in evaluation scores nor increase participants' reported levels of satisfaction. A lack of impact on experimental group subjects is discussed in terms of possible limitations in the experimental procedures and in the tools used to measure the dependent variables.

L'étude devait établir quels effets la distribution d'une liste énumérants les compétences cliniques des étudiants aurait sur les directeurs de stages. Vingt-neuf paires de sujets combinant directeur et étudiants ont été réoarties au hasard entre le groupe expérimental et le groupe tmoin. Les sujets du premier groupe ont reçu une liste des compétences cliniques correspondant à l'expérience de l'étudiant. On a déterminé l'incidence de la liste sur l'évaluation des étudiants au moyen de la cote W-PACC. Son incidence sur le degré de satisfaction des étudiants à l'égard du stage a été mesurée grâce à un questionnaire à 16 points. Les résltats révélent que la liste des compétences cliniques ne réduit pas la variance de la cote obtenue à l'évaluation et n'augemente pas le degré de satisfaction des participants. On tente d'expliquer l'absence d'impact sur les sujets du groupe expérimentale et des instruments utilisés pour mesurer les variables dépendantes.
