Bachelor of Computing Co-op Work Term Reports

Co-op Work Term Report Guidelines

All co-op students must submit a Co-op Work Report at the conclusion of every 4-month work term.  Please refer to B. vi. of the Co-op Policy Agreement for specific details on Co-op Work Report requirements.

The report is in the form of a website or blog, and you should keep adding to it as you gain co-op experience. It is a portfolio of your capabilities and experiences. Please send the URL of your report by email to:

Report grading:

  • Outstanding is a report with great writing (reflection) and images with some creativity that makes it stand out.
  • Very good is very well written with some images, very good writing and reflection.
  • Good is a good coverage of the work term but not much reflection.
  • Satisfactory is a brief report with little reflection, mostly covering work term goals and who the employer was.
  • Unsatisfactory is even less. In this case the student would need to improve the report or be dropped from Co-op.

Web Pages: Style
Create a nice, clean website. Unless you can do better, using a framework such as Bootstrap or a template in WordPress or Blogger is highly recommended. Test your website on a variety of browsers and operating systems to make sure it looks good and nothing breaks.

Web Pages: Content
The website should reflect on aspects of your work term experience, highlighting what you did and what you learned, including referencing your goals/learning outcomes and reflections. Please review the Elements of Work Term Report below.
