Purpose – Preclinical hours are required by the State of Illinois for teacher certification. This form is designed to track
and record the completed preclinical hours in each practicum experience.

Recording Information – Complete the student information section above. During the practicum, hours should be
recorded as they occur using the code system provided. At the end of each practicum, the student must complete
a written reflective statement in response to the prompts provided.

Signing/Submitting the Log Forms – Students are responsible for obtaining appropriate signatures for each preclinical
experience. At the end of the course, after the hours are coded and the reflections are written, the course
instructor should sign the logs and return them to the student.

It is the student’s responsibility to keep all original completed preclinical logs until:
         Bachelor of Arts students submit their original completed logs with their applications for Practicum II.
         Master of Arts in Teaching students submit their original completed logs at least 30 days prior to beginning
          student teaching to their Practicum II instructor. MAT students must also complete the NCE Log Summary
          Sheet when all hours are complete.

It is suggested that students make copies of the log sheets before submitting the original completed logs.


At the conclusion of each practicum, write responses to the following prompts. Print a copy of your responses and
attach to the signed log sheet.
