Students in a fall semester 200-level Education course are required to attend an October meeting about the “Portfolio System.”   During the spring semester, a similar meeting is scheduled.  This meeting is mandatory for students in a 200-level Education course for the first time.  At that time, the expectations for completion of the three portfolios is explained, with particular attention to the timeline and expectations for the completion of the “Introductory Portfolio.” 

  • The “introductory portfolio” must be completed satisfactorily no later than the last day of exams in the semester prior to the candidate’s first 300-level Education course. 

Fall Semester Completion

No later than the last day of exams, candidates who are required to complete the portfolio at the end of the fall semester must submit for assessment each of their competencies to the appropriate professor.  A professor may require an earlier date for his or her students’ submissions. 

No later than the last day of exams, these fall introductory portfolio completers also will send a link to their completed portfolio to the assessment coordinator.  The assessment coordinator will review the entire portfolio to document the satisfactory completion of this portfolio and to provide feedback to candidates as they look ahead to working on their “developing portfolio.”  When there are particular concerns about a candidate’s portfolio, the assessment coordinator will communicate with appropriate professors, such as the candidate’s future methods professor and/or advisor.

Spring Semester Completion

No later than the last day of exams, candidates who are required to complete the portfolio at the end of the spring semester must submit for assessment each of their competencies to the appropriate professor.  A professor may require an earlier date for his or her students’ submissions. 

No later than the last day of exams, these spring introductory portfolio completers also will submit a link to the assessment coordinator.  The assessment coordinator will review the entire portfolio to document the satisfactory completion of this portfolio and to provide feedback to candidates as they look ahead to working on their “developing portfolio.”  When there are particular concerns about a candidate’s portfolio, the assessment coordinator will communicate with appropriate professors, such as the candidate’s future methods professor and/or advisor.

At least a month before the end of the semester, the assessment coordinator will email students registered for their first 300-level Education course to remind them of the coming due date; it is each student’s responsibility to be alert to portfolio due dates.
