Portfolio and exit interview

Candidates must complete a portfolio as part of the Educational Leadership program of study.

A portfolio is an individualized collection of purposeful, interrelated materials which is ongoing and flexible.  The portfolio becomes an assessment tool, which leads to self-improvement through the development of reflective thinking and inquiry.  Candidates select artifacts from class assignments and align them to the appropriate Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC), Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium Standards (ISLLC), and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards. The portfolio is evaluated using a rubric aligned to the ELCC, ISLLC, and the ISTE standards.
