Designed evaluation program applied for experimental group and control group was evaluated with pervious tool.(routine tool) . According to the results independent t test indicated that there was a significant difference between experimental and control group in management skills (p<0/05). These results showed that in experimental group evaluation grades had showed student management skills but in control group evaluation grades didn't showed student management skills.
