Fieldstudy in geography is specific because the laboratorium of geography itself is the nature. Fieldstudy that is done outdoor requires a different kind of assessment. This article is aimed to compare the assessment of fieldstudy at four teacher’s colleges: Indonesia Education University or Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI), State University of Jakarta or Universitas Negeri Jakarta (UNJ), State University of Yogyakarta or Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (UNY), and State University of Semarang or Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNES). Study of the document is obtained from Academic Guideline Book (BPA), SOP (Standard Operational Procedure), results of the studies and other documents. The result of the study is intended to figure out the similarity and the difference of the fieldstudy in each study program. There is a diverse variation of fieldstudy assessments, but if observed through the fieldstudys operation mechanism, there are similarities in the following aspects: pre-activity, in term of planning/debriefing (which demands participation, involvement, discipline and teamwork); activity (which demands involvement and participatition); and post-activity, in term of report and presentation/exposure. The difference between assessments is on the kind of product or activity they yield, that are articles, leaflets, and papers (Geography Study Program in UPI). The assignment of the assessment for Geography Program of UNES is different because the 3 (three) supervisorss have different assignments while there is no such different assignment for the other colleges.
