Performance Evaluations

Student employee performance evaluations are an essential part of the employee’s growth and development. They give students and supervisors the opportunity to discuss performance achievements and address areas that need improvement. Meaningful and effective evaluations help students clarify expectations, set goals, and make connections between academics and work. The requirements and procedures for student employee performance evaluations are established at the department level. It is advised that employers conduct formal evaluations each academic year, but as often as each semester is ideal.

Student employees will share four core performance competencies. While the specific tasks a student performs to achieve theses competencies may differ across positions, the performance behaviors are similar. Core competencies include Communication, Ways of Thinking, Interpersonal Skills & Intercultural Knowledge, and Intrapersonal Awareness & Development. See the Student Employment Performance Evaluation Competencies for descriptions and rating scale.

Conducting Performance Evaluations

The Student Employment Management System (SEMS) includes a performance management module enabling managers to evaluate employees on core performance competencies and department specific objectives. Evaluation ratings and performance feedback notes are collected and sent on to the student employee for review. Visit Manager Resources for the SEMS Evaluation Training Guide.
