Employer’s Role in the Performance Review Process

The Career Centre oversees the Performance Review Process with the employer for each student on internship. The process of evaluating an intern’s performance will determine the intern’s Pass/Fail grade at the end of each work term. As a supervisor, you contribute to the student’s final grade by providing feedback on his/her progress at key points. The steps of this process and your involvement are listed below.

Please note that it is the student’s responsibility to coordinate and follow up with his/her supervisor to ensure the completion of each of the steps listed below by the deadlines.
