Our Evaluation Process
The Course Advisor –An Important element of our evaluation process
Using more than one method to collect and analyze our evaluation data ensures that our results are authentic. The 2methods we use are
-Survey – through the use of survey we collate progress report on mentors and mentees. Also the Course Advisor ensures that this part of the evaluation process is completed, he follow-up with everybody until the job is done. All the task that the Course Advisor performs in ensuring the program is effective puts him in a very good place to provide an objective assessment of everybody on the team. For instance if he has to follow up repeatedly on someone before the person performs a group task then he knows that such a person will have issues when the person get a job, he therefore note this in his assessment and provides recommendation on how to address the issue.
360° Appraisal System Learning Cycle
We also adopt 360° appraisal system where mentees evaluate their mentor and the mentor evaluates the mentees
Integrating social media into our evaluation process
In ensuring that mentors and mentees remain motivated and that the program achieves its objectives we carry out a periodic evaluation. As mentioned earlier, our target market i.e young professionals spend 35% of their day on social-media thus, we put this into consideration in designing every aspect of the mentoring program, evaluation inclusive. During our periodic evaluation we celebrate outstanding individuals and teams on our social media pages, this also ensures that our students competencies are promoted.
