The purpose of this study was to gain insight into physiotherapy students' experience
of formative assessment on placements. A purposive sample of nine physiotherapy
students was selected from a pre-registration problem-based learning programme.
Four postgraduate practice educators were interviewed to explore emergent themes.
A qualitative phenomenological approach was adopted using semi-structured
interviews. Reflective logs and theme boards were used to promote participants'
reflection prior to interview. An interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA)
approach was used.
