Welcome to EvaluateUR!

In conjunction with your research mentorship, you will be enrolled in the EvaluateUR program to facilitate purposeful mentoring discussions with your student mentee and to promote their metacognitive learning along the way. Through a series of assessments and student-mentor conversations, EvaluateUR will provide a measure of student learning in a series of outcome areas as well as the opportunity to reflect with your student(s) on their growth in research and other skills.

How Will EvaluateUR Benefit You?


While using EvaluateUR, you will:

  • Make more consistent and reliable assessments of your research students' academic strengths and weaknesses
  • Focus your mentoring efforts on specific areas where students may need extra guidance in order to become more independent researchers
  • Receive documented experience as a mentor of record (mentors can be post docs, graduate students, anyone primarily mentoring the student)
