Mentoring is an integral role within nursing and midwifery, but how do Mentors and Practice Teachers know if this role is effective? How do they know if they are really making a difference to students’ learning and making a valuable contribution to their learning experience and assessment process? How do they know what they themselves need to improve with their mentoring skills and how the practice placement can be improved? One essential element of being a Mentor/Practice teacher is that of evaluating this role and the students learning experience. The concept of evaluation according to Bailey-McHale and Hart (2013) is not unfamiliar to healthcare practitioners as they are continuously evaluating the quality of care given to service users. This final part of a series of eleven will explore the importance of evaluation, along with highlighting a number of ways in which Mentors/Practice Teachers can evaluate the students learning experience. This article relates to the Nursing and Midwifery (NMC) (2008a) Standards to Support Learning and Assessment in Practice (SSLAP) Domain 4 'Evaluation of Learning'. A number of activities will be incorporated to enable Mentors and Practice Teachers to generate evidence to demonstrate they have met this particular standard.
