To all GSoC students, please take note that the first round of project evaluations opens next week Monday, 11 June, with the due date later in the week on the 15th June.
Evaluations occur three times through the course of the program (after the first, second and third months of coding), and provide an opportunity for both students and mentors to evaluate progress on your project. Details will follow early next week once evaluations open, but this will require you to complete a set of survey questions on the GSoC site. For the second and final evaluations, you will also be expected to provide demo materials and presentations of your projects.
Please make sure to read through the section on Evaluations in the GSoC student guide to familiarise yourselves with how these work. To get an idea of the types of questions you’ll need to answer for each evaluation, there’s a list of example questions here:
Importantly, if you do not submit an evaluation within the given timeframe, you will fail and be removed from the program. Similarly, failing an evaluation means you are immediately removed from the GSoC program.
