Proficiencies, Eportfolios and OSP

The School of Education students had a much more in depth Proficiency Portfolio which they had put into the Open Source Portfolio (OSP) system. The students included a narrative, a statement explaining how they demonstrated the proficiency, many artifacts of their public school students' work to demonstrate that proficiency, and a reflection on their growth in each proficiency.


This semester three faculty reviewed in depth each students' eportfolio and gave a rating to each part of the portfolio that they reviewed. The faculty accessed the eportfolios from their home or office. In addition, many faculty met to discuss the students' portfolios after they had looked at the students' portofolios individually.


For the first time there has been an in depth review of the students' eportfolios by multiple reviewers.


The students in School of Education will continue to build on their previous eportfolios as they go through the School of Education program. Each semester the students show greater progresss in the School's proficiencies.
