Can my institution add custom questions to the evaluations?

Yes. Each institution can supplement the 28 behavioral questions asked on every evaluation with custom questions (e.g., multiple choice, open-ended, scale) by academic department or type of work experience. The platform provides flexibility for various departments to capture data which is critical for their programs while maintaining a consistent and comparable way to measure against the eight NACE competencies across the entire institution and other students nationally.

Are the work behaviors the same for all types of internships, co-ops or on-campus jobs?

No. SkillSurvey’s I/O Psychologists tailored more than a dozen evaluations to include aspects of job-related performance related to specific types of internships or co-ops (e.g., Finance, Engineering, Computer Science, Communications, Research).
