Ask if you can provide feedback about the student with the check box question (even though WE are giving him a Pass) – still very applicable and important information. If it is going to be for everyone, not just Fail, there could be a couple more statements – good as well as bad. Even great students could have good and bad (as WE discovered) even though they get a Pass at the end.
Separating the pay from Pass/Fail – doing enough to warrant being paid and Fail by criteria set are not mutually exclusive.
Also – strongly suggest pre-training on “open” development be a requirement. Could easily be a self study, with quizzes and the ability to “test out” of this. Even if this something the GSofC pick up, WE and others could easily set it up and make it a condition for proposal and student acceptance into the program.
