News and Visual Journalism Supervisor Evaluation Form

Intern Evaluation Form

As part of the internship program in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, we ask each professional supervisor to evaluate the intern's performance. The internship is graded either satisfactory or unsatisfactory, and your evaluation will help determine the grade.

The information you give us on this form is confidential; However, we generally share the tone of the evaluation with the student. If you wish to write us a confidential note in addition to the evaluation, please feel free to do so.

The "comments" section at the end is especially important because it will help us prepare future interns.

Please rank the intern from 1 (not acceptable) to 5 (excellent) in each of the areas listed. Choose not applicable if it is not applicable. If you wish to remove one of the multiple choice answers, click the reset button at the end of the form (this removes all of the form's answers).
