Evaluation of KIN Athletic Training Graduate Assistants

The performance of each athletic training graduate assistant must be evaluated at least annually by Dr. Covassin or Dr. Kuenze and the supervisor of the athletic training facility to which the student is assigned. Evaluations will be based upon fulfilling the duties of the assistantship, maintaining athletic training skills and certifications, and professional demeanor.
