MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

For Faculty Supervisors: Evaluating Students

As a UROP supervisor, you are asked to assess your UROP students at the end of each term. We want you to tell us about their contributions to your research group, and what their work habits were like. We want to hear about your "star performers" and their accomplishments, inventions, published papers, presentations, etc. We also want to hear about any problems, situations or frustrations you had.

Your comments help us follow the progress of the UROP program as a whole. It also lets us identify the students best suited to represent MIT and UROP in public presentations to parents, alumni, and prospective students. It is very important that you take the time to give your UROP students regular feedback about their performance.

We prefer comments to be submitted via the online UROP system. See the Evaluations section of the Online UROP System Instructions for complete details. Evaluations are also accepted via email to

NOTE: If one of your graduate students, post-docs, or other researchers worked more closely with your UROP student(s), we will accept their evaluation on your behalf, provided that they "cc" you on the evaluation submitted.

Should you have questions or concerns that you would prefer to discuss in person, please feel free to contact UROP staff in 7-104 or UROP's Program Coordinator, Melissa Martin-Greene, at x3-3002.
