Each quarter, reports are completed to establish a “360 degree” evaluation of the program from the perspective of the mentor, intern, and institution. In the final week of the internship, the student will complete an evaluation which will include rating scales and open ended questions to assess the quality of the employing company and mentor along with the internship program. The mentor will also complete an evaluation of the intern’s work during the experience along with gauging their satisfaction in the overall program, inclusive of suggestions for improvement. These evaluations will be returned to the program coordinator at the culmination of the internship. Additionally, the faculty coordinator will complete their component of the evaluation by grading the student on their work during the internship and completing a small questionnaire regarding the mentor and sponsoring company. All evaluation results will be submitted to the Internship Program Coordinator each quarter.
