Developing Internship Evaluation Forms
April 19, 2010
Springfield, OH – Wittenberg Center for Applied Management (WittCAM) consultant Jace McGonigle and Brandon Brown are working with Karen Reynolds, Director of WittPath to development Internship Evaluation Forms, one of which would be completed by the site supervisor to assess an intern's performance and the other form would be completed by the intern to evaluate the internship site and site supervisor. The evaluation forms were created to measure job competencies that would reach across all disciplines. Research and data, which included interviewing department heads, was gathered to determine the type of format and scale, as well as the specific behavioral examples for each competency. Pilot testing of the instruments will be conducted at the end of the semester to determine the ease with which to complete and usefulness of the forms.
