We have our tutors tape themselves. Of course, the tutoring is done in the LAC so we provide the tape and the camcorder. Maybe you could figure out a way for them to tape off campus. We use the tapes to evaluate. First the tutor watches his/her own tape and evaluates him/herself. Then the lead tutor watches separately and evaluates. The tutor receives a comment sheet on the taped evaluation. We also do person-to-person evaluations. Once we get Level III certified tutors, we may use them as mentors and informal evaluators. -----Original Message----- From: Brandy Robertson [mailto:[log in to unmask]] Sent: Thursday, May 03, 2001 12:16 PM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: performance appraisal for tutors I am trying to implement a more comprehensive performance appraisal program for our tutors. However, I am finding it difficult to observe our tutors who have individualized contracts because we do not have a centralized location for tutoring and the time of tutoring is arranged between the tutor and the student. Does anyone have suggestions? I would also like to see some examples of performance evaluation forms. Any information about the evaluation procedures at different institutions would also be appreciated.
