Performance evaluations

Near the end of the work term, you will receive an email for each student you supervise with a link to their student performance evaluation. Please be sure to submit the evaluation in WaterlooWorks at the end of your student's work term to ensure they receive the credit.

The Student Performance Evaluation format will change on January 30, 2021 to provide you with better clarity as your student focuses on developing targeted talents and competencies over the course of their work term. 

To assist you and your student in identifying these competencies, the University of Waterloo has developed the Future Ready Talent Framework (FRTF), consisting of four talent clusters, that contain three competencies each. The rating system from Outstanding to Unsatisfactory remains unchanged.

Instructions to complete the form (either using the email link or within WaterlooWorks) are available on our website.

Please keep in mind your rating will become part of the student's co-op work history. Therefore, it will be seen by prospective employers when they apply to future jobs. We also encourage you to have an informal midterm
