Participation in fieldwork is critical to the development of clinical-reasoning skills in OT practitioner students. Little is known about what contributes to the development of clinical-reasoning skills in OT assistants (OTAs) in comparison to OT students. To fill this gap, a mixed-method study was conducted to identify the learning activities that OTA and OT students experienced during their Level II fieldwork and their relative contributions to clinical-reasoning development.
