All programs should have a way to evaluate the law students. The evaluation should identify both what the law students are doing well and what they need to improve upon.

Self-evaluation

Inviting law students to evaluate themselves is a common approach.

Program Coordinator Observation

Most supervised programs have one or two observations per semester of the law students teaching at the site. 

Feedback from On-site Teacher/Site Coordinator

Written and oral feedback from the on-site teacher provides insight into the performance of the law students. One Street Law program requires the on-site teacher to submit a critique to the director for each class taught, while others have an end-of-year assessment. Some programs receive feedback from the high school students.

Grades

There are a couple of ways to approach grading law students who participate in a credit-bearing Street Law program.
