Supervised Internship Assessment

Assessment: In addition to appropriate job placement, each student will be required to attend and participate in the appropriate Supervised Internship course, to share learning experiences with fellow students, and to complete a project or program of activities approved by the supervising faculty member. The purpose of such activities is to provide a focus for the learning activity of the program. Criteria for evaluation of student performance and accomplishments will be established at the beginning of the semester. Student, faculty supervisor and employer will establish learning objectives relating work experience to the academic field of study. They will determine the appropriate measurements for appraising student performance. Students will meet regularly with the instructor during the semester to discuss the progress of the internship placement. The instructor may make such contacts with the work supervisor (including on-site visits) as are appropriate. The instructor will have responsibility for integrating these various evaluative components in the final grade. There will be continuous assessment of learning outcomes for students, the quality of placements and the degree to which Rowan University and the College of Business are instilling the skills and knowledge employers expect of our students. Students, employers and other stakeholders will regularly be asked for feedback designed to assist the College of Business in documenting these outcomes.
