Don't just take it from us… listen to what the many satisfied users are saying about CALIPSO!
“CALIPSO was a very efficient, convenient, and user-friendly web-based evaluation program. By using an internet program, it creates a "green" evaluation method, as well as a "stress-free" method for students and clinicians alike as there is no concern for misplaced paperwork!”
“The CALIPSO program really streamlined the student evaluation process. The organization and ease of CALIPSO gave me time to focus on providing quality feedback to the student, which is the real focus, without the time intensive challenges of completing cumbersome forms and calculating scores. I love how it self-calculates. When I was finished with an evaluation, I simply clicked “save” and was done. No faxing, mailing, or sending attachments via e-mail. How easy is that!”
“CALIPSO has made the supervising process so much easier. It organizes and tracks performance in the different ASHA required areas, calculates student performance, and allows you to easily identify areas of weakness and strength.”
“Calipso saves trees! Reports, evaluations and other documentation are maintained in a password-protected environment where the student and supervisor can view information when needed, thus eliminating the need to make copies that are usually stored in paper files that are less confidential and secure. Because all the information was at my fingertips, I wasn’t constantly calling or e-mailing the clinical coordinator.”
“As a clinical instructor, I have been very pleased with the use of CALIPSO for student evaluations and feedback. The web based program is easy to use and covers all the skills necessary to be an informed and effective clinician. I give it my highest recommendation!”
“Calipso is an easy to use, objective measure of my graduate students' abilities at their current levels of training. This tool is an incredible time-saver!”
“CALIPSO is an excellent site for clinical management of student performance. It was user friendly and very easy to navigate. I also liked being able to review my responses so easily or reviewing the students’ impressions of their clinical experience.”
“I was very impressed with the CALIPSO system in managing the evaluations and paperwork for my student. It was fast, easy to use, and informative. I appreciated being able to see what classes and practicums she had already completed in order to see how much assistance was needed for patient care.”
“CALIPSO is an excellent tool for evaluating a student's performance. It is comprehensive and user friendly. It evaluates specific areas of clinical interest, allowing the supervisors to provide useful feedback and assisting students in focusing on areas needed for growth.”
“Using this program has simplified the supervisory process. It covers every aspect of ASHA’s “Big 9” to assist the SLP in the grading process. It also allows you to view the areas in which the student may need more experience. This program is an innovative part of student supervision!”
CALIPSO recently celebrated its 6th anniversary, and we are pleased to announce that our program is now used by more than 170 schools.
