This mixed-methods study aimed to identify the Level II fieldwork learning activities that OT assistant (OTA) students (N = 57) found contributed to the development of their clinical reasoning skills. The data produced six themes that affected the development of OTA students' clinical reasoning skills. These themes explore the components of the students' fieldwork experience that the students perceived to have the biggest impact on the development of their clinical reasoning.
