Background and Objectives: Clinical education evaluation in the fields of medical sciences is of particularly high sensitivity due to its important role in the training of professional staff, and different methods are mostly used in this field to assess performance and clinical competence of students. This study was carried out to compare the satisfaction of operating room students of two methods of electronics portfolio and conventional evaluation.

Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, clinical evaluation was performed on 21 operating room students in the sixth semester by a conventional method and in the seventh semester by electronic portfolio. After similar clinical training, satisfaction of the two evaluation methods was assessed using a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using paired t-test. The significance level was considered less than 0.05.

Results: The total satisfaction of electronic portfolio evaluation (11.5±6) was more than the conventional evaluation (6.6±4.1), and this difference was statistically significant (t=2.64, p=0.01). The level of satisfaction in terms of fairness of the evaluation, similarities of the existing subjects to clinical experiences, creating interest and motivation towards learning, dominance of coach in the implementation of evaluation method, getting feedback from coach, creating motivation for the use of books and other literature, paying attention to different aspects of evaluation, and helping to find defects and compensate them during training evaluation method, was reported more in the electronic portfolio than in the conventional method, and this difference was statistically significant (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The use of electronic portfolio method increases the level of students’ satisfaction of the evaluation method of clinical training and could be effective in the elimination of defects from conventional evaluation.
