Introduction: Evaluation is the most efficient way to enhance the quality of education. The quality of education cannot be understood without it. Enhancing the quality of clinical education requires continuous assessment of the current situation, identification of strengths, and correction of weaknesses. The present study aimed to investigate the bachelor students in operating room on evaluation of clinical performance using paper logbook, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, 60 bachelor students in operating room in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, were selected by simple randomly sampling. The data collection tools were self-made questionnaires. Their validity and reliability were confirmed. Descriptive statistics(frequency, percentage of frequency, mean and standard deviation) was used to analyze the data. Results: About 56.7% of students believed that current logbook did not create necessary motivation of learning for them. According to 58.3% of the students, evaluation based on logbook was not entirely fair. About 63.3% of them fully believed that there was not proper physical space to keep and transport logbook in operating room. According to 70% of them, the contents of logbook were not in accordance with educational objectives. Furthermore, the results showed that 83.3% of students believed that the contents were not designed in an appropriate order in the logbook and 66.3% believed that evaluation with logbook can create stress. Conclusion: The results suggest the need to review the content of the current logbooks, to create more interest through change and variety in evaluation methods. It is recommended to use updated methods such as electronic methods, especially in the operating room environment, to reduce pollution.
