Student evaluations can be found on My Dashboard -> Evaluations from the Melange homepage during the designated evaluation window. You will be notified by e-mail when the evaluation window is open.
To complete the midterm evaluation, click on Midterm Evaluation in the Evaluations list. Fill out the required information and press Submit.
To complete the final evaluation, click on Final Evaluation in the Evaluations list. Fill out the required information and press Submit.
For both the midterm and final evaluations, as soon as you press Submit, the evaluation will be automatically visible to the Organization Administrator, but not to the Mentor associated with your project (unless your Mentor is an Organization Administrator). You can edit your evaluation until the evaluation window closes. After that, you cannot change anything.
After the evaluation window closes, you will receive an e-mail to notify you of your evaluation status with information about whether you have passed or failed. You can view submitted evaluations by visiting My Dashboard -> Evaluations.
Once the window closes your project will be in one of three states:
- Pass: The Student submitted an evaluation of their Mentor before the deadline, the Mentor submitted an evaluation of the Student before the deadline, and the Mentor marked the Student as "pass" on the evaluation.
- Fail: The Student automatically fails if she does not submit an evaluation of her Mentor before the deadline, regardless of the grade the Mentor gives the Student. The Student also fails if she submits an evaluation of her Mentor and the Mentor marks the Student as "fail" on the Student's evaluation.
- Undecided: The Student submitted an evaluation of her Mentor, but the Mentor did not submit an evaluation of the Student by the deadline. The Student is in this state until the Program Administrator manually changes the Student's grade to either a pass or a fail.
