Wisconsin OT and PT Evaluation Rubric
The Wisconsin OT and PT Evaluation Rubric is a set of therapist standards and descriptive indicators derived from the literature and expertise of Wisconsin therapists on OT/PT practice. The rubric is designed to help OTs and PTs identify and reflect on their typical current practice and map a path for continued reflection and growth.
The rubric is not intended to be used as a stand-alone evaluation tool, rather as a part of a collaborative effort to demonstrate an individual's growth and development over time.
Wisconsin OT and PT Evaluation User Guide
The OT/PT Evaluation User Guide was created to help OTs and PTs and their evaluators to plan and carry out evaluations specific to their unique professional roles.
The guide provides a foundational understanding of Wisconsin’s OT and PT Evaluation System. Districts may augment this guide with additional local, regional, or state professional development and training opportunities in order to continuously improve the quality and efficacy of the WI OT and PT Evaluation System.

Completed by the evaluator after reviewing all forms of observation evidence, the therapist’s artifact evidence aligns to rubric components, as well as the therapist’s self-scores and reflections. Evaluator documents summary practice component scores and a holistic SPO score on this form.
We recognize and extend thanks to the small writing group of statewide OTs, PTs, and Special Education Directors who committed extensive time, energy, and expertise to make this evaluation system available to OTs and PTs statewide.
