Abstract

As an internship director, I will discuss some of the major findings that emerged from analyzing nearly two years worth of supervisor evaluations of student intern performances including workplace literacy and academic preparedness. In addition to reporting on supervisor feedback, I will share how writing majors from my home institution perceive the internship supervision they received and how well their coursework prepared them for their internship experiences. By sharing these results, I seek to encourage more departments to utilize supervisor feedback to assess their academic programs, their students abilities, and their students state of readiness post-graduation for employment.
