Objectives: One of the problems in the process of assessment and evaluation, especially the evaluation of clinical training in rehabilitation disciplines, is the lack of an appropriate instrument
for this purpose. Considering the effects of appropriate evaluation on quality assurance of clinical training, the aim of the present study was to design a valid and reliable tool for general evaluation of clinical training in rehabilitation disciplines. Methods: This study was carried out initially by literature review and then by holding a focus group discussion with the trainers and mentors of rehabilitation clinics whom were recruited by convenient purposive sampling. The main indicators for evaluation of training in these fields were determined. After classification of the indicators, evaluation tool was developed. The face validity and content validity of the tool were determined with the Lawasche's method. The reliability was determined with the test- retest method and Cronbakh's alpha coefficient.
Results: Content analysis of the focus group discussion [FGD] resulted in determining 57 indices which were classified in 5 categories [including: the educator or trainer, the Trainees [students in these disciplines] , administration of clinical training, fields of training and evaluation of clinical training] . The final tool was adjusted in two separate questionnaires. The correlation coefficient for the questionnaire of the clinical trainers was 0.9, its Cronbakh's alpha coefficient was 0.88 and its content validity coefficient was 0.84. The correlation coefficient for the questionnaire of the students was 0.7, its Cronbakh's alpha was 0.92 and its content validity coefficient was 0.81.
