The performance evaluation is intended to encourage professional growth and constructive communication between you, the graduate assistant, and your faculty supervisor(s).




1. You first make an appointment with your supervisor(s). If you had more than one supervisor during the semester, make an appointment with each.

2. Before you meet, complete your portion of the evaluation form, and then give it to your supervisor at least two days in advance of your appointment.

3. Your faculty supervisor completes his/her assessment, filling out the evaluation form before you meet.

4. At the meeting, discuss your performance with your supervisor using the form as a guide. At the end of the meeting, both of you sign the form.   

5. After your meeting, make a copy of the form for your own file.  Submit the original signed, PRINTED performance evaluation form to the Graduate Program Coordinator.
