Work Term Report
Do I have to submit a report and evaluation every work term even though I will be working with the same employer for more than one term? I submitted a Work Term Report last term, do I need to submit another one this term?
I am doing the same work and utilizing the same skills that I reported in my last work term report, can I just submit the same report this term?
No, the Work Term Report helps to determine your pass/fail grade for each work term.
In writing your report, consider mentioning the following:
- New skills and knowledge developed
- Skills strengthened
- Type of work that you are now doing more of; discuss additional duties and/or the results of projects that were initiated in previous terms
- Advice to other interns. Now that you are in your 2nd, 3rd or 4th work term, you are now better prepared to share ideas/thoughts for new interns about adjusting to a new work environment and working in a team
Is it my supervisor's responsibility to ensure that the Supervisor Evaluation is completed and submitted by the deadline?
My supervisor will be away on vacation and I am not sure if he/she will have the time to finish the evaluation by the deadline, can I submit it late?
No. Late submissions will result in a Failing grade in the Work Term Internship course and you will have to go through York University's formal process of petitioning/appealing your grade. This can be a lengthy process and you are encouraged to avoid this by submitting your documents by the deadline.
If your supervisor will be on vacation, then you will need to find out if there is another manager/supervisor/team lead that can complete the form for you so you do not miss the deadline.
My supervisor is very busy. He/she is under a lot of pressure to meet multiple deadlines and doesn't have time to complete the evaluation for me. What can I do?
