Student Evaluation

greenhouse_winterGraduate students in the Department of Psychology are annually evaluated for their progress through the M.A. and Ph.D programs. Students in the quantitative methods area are expected to develop a dossier of their plan of study, quantitative interests, knowledge, skill sets and achievements throughout their tenure in the program.

The dossier should  be electronically submitted to the quantitative methods area coordinator no later than May 1 of each academic year. The dossier will be reviewed by all faculty of the quantitative methods area. As the dossier allows faculty to guide students in their training and early career development, students will receive formal written feedback from the faculty regarding their dossier, including suggestions on how the dossier should be further developed over the next academic year.

The dossier includes: (i) a current curriculum vitae and (ii) an updated quantitative methods student evaluation form downloadable here.
