EXIT PORTFOLIO STATEMENT 
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.  The portfolio experience also provides a model for the continuous professional development of educational administrators in the world of practice. The students will select artifacts from class assignments and align them to the appropriate ELCC and ISLLC and NETS-A standards. They will select at least one artifact for each standard.  They will write reflections that demonstrate how the artifact helped them master the standard. The portfolio will be evaluated using a rubric aligned to the ELCC standards 1-6 as well as the ISLLC standards 1-6 and the NETS-A standards 1-5.
