Activities are a fundamental component of an internship.  Activities can also be thought of as assignments, and are tasks that are completed by members of the internship, often followed by assessment of the member’s work.  Activities contain a template, which specifically defines the requirements of the activity, and includes any rubrics used for assessment.

The Activity Details Page

When on the internship details page, clicking on an activity will the display the activity details page.  The activity details page shows the details of the activity, including the activity’s overall assessment status.  This page also displays a list of all students of the internship, as well as each student’s individual submission and assessment status.

The Assessment Page

Assessment of member submissions takes place on the assessment page.  The assessment page displays the member submitted template.  This page also allows an assessor to score any rubrics included in the template, provide general feedback to the member, and type comments directly into the submitted template.
The assessment page is divided into two halves.  The left side shows the template submitted by a member.  The right side displays the Assessment Panel.

The Assessment Panel

The assessment panel occupies the right side of the assessment page.  The assessment panel contains several components useful in assessing a submission, including any rubrics to be completed, or a Feedback text box for responding to a submitter.

Student Log

The Student Log allows an intern to record any tasks or events relevant to their internship.  Mentors can view this time log, and approve or reject the intern’s entries (Note: entries can also be approved by the student's supervisor or instructor).

An internship’s time logs are viewed by clicking the Student Log tab on the internship details page. Alternatively, on the In Progress tab, an individual internship’s View Student Logs button will also open the Student Log tab.

NOTE:  The Student Log feature is optional when administrators create internships.  If there is no Student Log button or tab, the Student Log feature has not been enabled for the internship.

To view, approve, and reject time log entries:

     1. On the In Progress tab, click an internship title.
     2. Click the Student Log tab to view any interns who have recorded log entries.
     3. To view an intern’s time log entries, click anywhere on the intern’s row.
     4. On the intern’s log entries list, click either the check mark to approve, or the X mark to reject.
