co-op-performance-appraisal.gifTo finalize a student’s co-op or internship grade at the end of the term, we require an evaluation from the direct supervisor.

The performance evaluation request is delivered directly to supervisors, approximately two weeks prior to the end of the term, via email, with a link to an online evaluation instrument. Once the evaluation is completed and submitted, the answers are automatically returned to Career Services.

We ask that supervisors personally review the evaluations with the student and answer any questions the student may have about the ratings and comments. This discussion is most helpful to the student if it occurs prior to their end-of-term exit interview in Career Services.

Items to be completed on evaluation instruments may vary, but some standard items include:

  • Student job title
  • Student’s Wright State University college
  • Student’s Wright State University major
  • Student’s class standing
  • A rating of the student’s quality of work
  • A rating of the student’s adaptation to the work environment
  • A rating of the student’s attitude and application to work
  • A rating of the student’s judgment
  • A rating of the student’s relations with others
  • A rating of the student’s dependability
  • A rating of the student’s attendance
  • A rating of the student’s punctuality
  • A rating of the student’s academic preparation for the co-op or internship experience
  • A rating of the student’s overall performance
  • A selection regarding the candidates viability for future employment with the organization
  • An option for additional comments
