Pre-project Assessment

Independent mentored project - Pre assessment

There is a plethora of research on the benefits of having a mentored relationship with a professor and being engaged together in an independent scholarly or creative project. To be sure HPU students are experiencing those same benefits as the literature indicates we need to assess the experiences of our students. This is an assessment survey about your skill sets and experience with research or creative works at the start of your project. Please complete this form only after you registered your project on the Mentee Registry. We will follow up with similar questions at the end of your project so we have data on how the experience of doing mentored work impacted your undergraduate experience. Please be as honest as you can about your skills. You are not expected to come into the experience with experience.
  • If you have more than one major, please select the major that reflects your mentored project.
