Finishing Your Co-op - 'Reflection'Detailed PDF of what to do to finish your co-op.**
Please note: You will not receive credit for co-op if you do not submit EVERYTHING as outlined below.
Here is what you MUST turn in (by the deadline) to receive a SATISFACTORY grade for your co-op.
Feel free to email me your paper. If you have a hand signed eval - I will need the hard copy or a scan. I can get the self-eval and employer evals off of COOL. Good Luck!
This deadline is the 15th of the month AFTER the co-op cycle ends(i.e. either Jan 15th, or July 15th) (If the 15th falls on a weekend – everything is due the following Monday)
#1 Complete the student self-evaluation (on my NEUCOOL - go to placements - and then the evaluation tab...click on begin) (if you do this 1st – it can help you with your reflection project)
#2 Complete the reflection project (paper, brochure, PowerPoint, or video) (guidelines are spelled out in this PDF)
#3 Make sure your employer finishes their Evaluation of your performance on-line * (they should also meet with you to discuss what they have said) – if they don’t want to do it on-line – there are links to forms below
#4 Turn all of this in to me before the deadline to make sure I have everything I need to give you a grade.
#5 Rate your job and what you liked and didn't like in COOL < go to your placements and click on “rate for students”> (this helps us evaluate the site you worked at - is it a good job?, are they helping you as much as they tell us they will, etc.) When students look at the jobs in MyNEU COOL, this can help them "feel it out more"
Earlier in the cycle you received an email confirming your supervisor. This was so that your employer could be emailed a link to your evaluation. NU is asking the employers to answer these questions on-line. You should remind your supervisor that they will receive this link, ask them to fill it out, and then ask them to meet with you to discuss their feedback.
(Some students and employers may also use this on their first day of work to set goals for the Co-op as well) (This is provided in both MS-Word and Adobe Acrobat formats.)
(once employers have filled this out - the results will be in COOL. You will be able to see their feedback once you have completed the self-evaluation)
These are the old forms... they are similar to the eval on line - but not exactly. These are just for your reference.
Employment Evaluation Form (pdf) - but most employers will answer these questions on-line
