Faculty are responsible for interpreting and assessing student performance at the site. Criteria for assessment include the extent to which the student has met the responsibilities described in the outline as well as the outcomes of the learning contract. Faculty will work with site supervisors in assessing the student level of performance. In order to ensure that faculty have enough information to work with, students should ensure that they sustain regular contact. Calls can be resumed at the college's expense if there is a problem with costs at the site.

6. STUDENT RESEARCH PROJECT REPORT: 30% of total grade (proposal is due at the end of week 4, and completed reports must be submitted by the end of week 13 at the latest, to ensure adequate marking time.)
Detailed guidelines for the project are included in the Internship Manual. Please refer to these for the information on the specific format, expectations and criteria for assessment. following:
This project should not put any extraordinary pressure on the student or the host site. Students are encouraged to approach the paper as a vehicle for presentation or publication. Students must consult with sites regarding copyright and disclosure of informa ion. Faculty recognise that some sites may have better libraries and resources than others, thus fitting the project to the resources available is key to success.
Final reports will be filed in the college. Please submit two copies of the paper to the college, one for comments and one for the programme to keep on file. A third copy must be filed with the site. As late in the semester is a very busy time in the academic year, papers must be submitted on time. This means the scope of your activity should be manageable within the 15 week time frame. Students should keep a fourth copy for their own portfolio.
