Guideline for the Student Mid-term and Final Self-Evaluations

At the end of the first semester of the internship and then again at the end of the internship, conduct a self-evaluation of your experience reflecting on your progress in achieving the goals set out in your Learning Covenant. Are you accomplishing what you hoped you would? Do your goals need to be adjusted? Provide reflective comments in each section that applies to your specific major and experience. The questions are suggestions and not designed to be prescriptive.
 
Length: two to four pages, typed double-spaced.
Procedure: Once you have completed the self-evaluation, share it with your supervisor to read, discuss with you and then sign.
