In addition, a faculty director assigns and evaluates short assignments designed to assess the intern¿s learning. The Level 2 Internship focuses on analyzing assessment instruments (e.g., portfolios, observation checklists, reading logs, video conversations, in-house rubrics at the internship site, etc.) for performace-based measurement of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Note: Due to accreditation requirements, tutoring must be face-to-face. The forty hours may not be fulfilled by peer interactions, online interaction, or simulations.
