Co-op Grading FAQ's

What is the purpose of the meeting?

  • Open up lines of communication between you and a faculty member.
  • Bring depth to your co-op experience, by discussing your experiences with a knowledgeable mentor.
  • Give faculty a chance to hear about your co-op experience.

This meeting is designed to be mutually beneficial for you and for your co-op coach. This meeting is NOT intended to ‘test’ you, or make it harder for you to pass your co-op.

What will the meeting be about?

You can expect to touch on the following topics during your meeting with your co-op coach:

  • Key points from your evaluation (successes, challenges, etc).
  • Your supervisor’s review of your work
  • Your feedback about the experience overall
  • How well the SE curriculum prepared you for your co-op
  • Future co-op and career plans

How long is the meeting?

Your meeting is expected to run between 15-30 minutes.

I won’t be on campus the quarter following my co-op. What should I do?

If you won’t be on campus during the term following your co-op (for example, if you're taking a Leave of Absence, or returning home for the summer), you should contact the SE Office to make other arrangements.

What if I'm on a double block?
If you are on a double block, you only need to meet with your co-op coach one time – after you return to campus following your final block.

If all evaluations are submitted on time, you will receive an S for the first block.

My online evaluations have not been submitted. Should I still schedule an appointment?

No, you should not plan to meet with your co-op coach until both the student and the employer evaluations have been submitted online.
