Mentoring is critical to teacher development. Effectiveness is measured through surveys completed by interns and university supervisors at the end of each semester as well as feedback on mentoring skills and responsibilities.
Data (surveys, observations, feedback) collected is reviewed by the Holmes Center and used for program improvement, mentor selection and continuation, and appropriate matching of mentors and interns.
