The Mentee Quiz

Shape Shape Shape Shape

The mentee’s role in the relationship is just as important as the mentor’s. Where the mentor offers guidance, motivation and support, the mentee identifies the skills and competencies they wish to gain and demonstrates that, over time, they are learning from the relationship. An effective mentee also takes responsibility by being prepared for meetings and keeps the mentoring relationship on track.

This quiz will help you evaluate your mentee or mentees to determine the strength of your relationship.

Score each question:  1 = Never, 2 = Sometimes, 3 = Always.

If you scored 35 – 45. You have a great mentee; take time to nurture this relationship as it may last a lifetime.

If you scored 25 – 34. You have a good mentee but he or she needs to work on some things. You may want to review this quiz with them during one of your meetings.

If you scored 24 or less. You may want to provide your mentee with some feedback from this quiz to see whether they are receptive to it. If they aren’t open to the feedback, you may want to recommend an informal mentoring relationship where they can reach out to you on an as needed basis only.

Remember though, good mentoring relationships are a two-way street. If you want a good relationship with your mentee, you need to be a good mentor. Check out The Mentor Quiz to see the core attributes of an effective mentor.
