ALBIZU LIBRARY ASSESSMENT KIT POLICYAttention
The libraryís assessment kits and protocol/forms are solely for use of students currently enrolled in assessment courses. Faculty who teach assessment courses may also borrow test kits (upon validation of course(s) being taught). Doctoral students who are doing their internship or practicum at the clinic must use the test kits and forms available at the Goodman Center Clinic to test their patients. If there is a test that you need that Goodman Center does not have, please inform Ms. Maria Martin (billing clerk at Goodman Center) and she will order the necessary test kits with accompanying forms.
Those students, who have registered for an external practicum site/internship site, must use assessment kits and protocol/forms from that site. External practicum sites/internship sites are responsible for providing their interns/practicum students with the necessary resources (test kits, protocol/forms and other material) for students to be able to perform their duties. Please inform your site supervisor to order necessary tests/forms for you to do your work.
The library has encountered problems when students borrow test kits for external practicum sites. Test kits arrive late and with parts missing. Please be responsible borrowers and ensure that all material is returned to the kit after each use. Our borrowing terms (duration and fines) are clearly listed on our website.
As we are a small library with limited space and budget, we cannot purchase a test kit for every student in every assessment course. It is the patronís responsibility to return material on time. As a library, our role is to ensure fair circulation of our material and to enforce our policies.
The Albizu Library Assessment Kit Policy is non-negotiable and will be enforced by all faculty who teach assessment courses. Albizu Library reserves the right to refuse to provide assessment kits and forms to those students who do not fall within the norms of this policy.
