Employer feedback is a critical component of the co-op process. It helps students to grow and develop as a professional. The Division of Professional Practice provides an online evaluation form for employers to use in their appraisal process.
The co-op students’ Professional Practice faculty advisor will help students learn from their performance and prepare for the future based upon this critical appraisal. The university can also learn much about its educational processes through this connection with industry, and make modifications to enhance its ability to provide you with the best qualified students.
Professional Assessment and Learning (PAL):
Please click on the following PAL link to login into your account with the Professional Assessment and Learning website. Within this site you will find your Employer Evaluation Form.
As a co-op supervisor, you assume the important role of guiding student learning and assessing student performance, growth, potential, and development needs. UC uses the assessment information you provide to improve academic programs to better meet employer needs. We ask you to:
- Assess the student's progress against his/her learning objectives.
- Assess the student's performance.
If you have a double sectioning (six sequential month) co-op student, we prefer if you complete the evaluation forms for each work term.
To complete the required forms:
Go to http://www.uc.edu/propractice/pal
Employer Login: Your email address.
Password: You can set a first time password at the UC PAL website.
Click on the link "View My Co-op Student History".
Choose the current work term.
For each student listed, click on the student name and please complete the necessary assessment forms.
All information will be retained in the system and can be printed for your records.
Please submit all forms electronically by the last week of the co-op student's work term.
