Evaluation, Final Internship Assignments and Forms

An evaluation of students internship will be based on the following:

  1. Weekly E-mail Reports: The intern must report to the faculty supervisor by e-mail at least ONCE EACH WEEK during the internship period. FAILURE TO MAKE WEEKLY EMAIL REPORTS MAY BE CAUSE FOR RECEIVING A FAILING GRADE IN THE INTERNSHIP. The email report should be a brief statement regarding progress of the internship and the student's description of what is being learned. The purpose of the weekly email is to act as the sort of conversation or conference you might have if you were able to go to your faculty supervisor's office and talk about the internship. In your email, discuss the various tasks you've been asked to do, as well as your impressions of what you're learning and the adequacy of the training you receive at the internship site. To ensure privacy interns should not send email to faculty from the internship site.

  2. Faculty Supervisor/Agency Consultation: A faculty supervisor will request a brief on-site consultation, or other consultation, with the internship agency supervisor to ascertain the student's responsibilities and progress in the internship. The faculty supervisor will also speak separately with the student about the internship experience.

  3. Internship Agency Evaluation: Near the end of the internship, the Music Department will send a one-sheet evaluation form to the on-site supervisor for comments and a recommendation for a final grade.

  4. Successful Completion of Required Contact Hours: Completion of 400 contact hours of approved internship/field experience (for students matriculated after Fall 2009, completion of 360 contact hours of approved internship/field experience.)

  5. Successful Completion of Final Internship Assignments

Students are asked to fill out a "SPI" (Student Perception of Instruction Evaluation) form and free response comment sheet. The evaluation is not part of the student's internship assignment or grade.
Instructors will not see the results of student evaluation until after the internship grade has been submitted. The forms will be sent to students by the Music Department secretary. Students are asked to return them to the Music Department Office in the envelope provided. DO NOT return "SPI" forms to your faculty supervisor.
