Semester "Final Exam"
While many aspects of a competency can be demonstrated in the context of a summative assessment, some aspects can only be measured in the context of a body of work which reflects academic development over time. The goal of the portfolio is to offer evidence of summative and formative work completed in the context of a whole semester. The totality of this work offers evidence for each indicator within a competency.
Each semester, learners will create and maintain a digital semester portfolio to set personal academic goals, track progress, reflect on the development of skills and demonstrate competency. To create your portfolio, follow these steps:
Step #I: Create Portfolio
Step #2: Add Competencies
Step #3: Set Personal Goals
Step #4: Evidence
Step #5: Self-Evaluation
Semester Portfolio Symposium
Replacing the traditional “final exam”, the symposium offers students the opportunity to demonstrate competency through the following activities:
· formal submission of completed semester portfolios
· publication of student selected/student created original works in a classroom gallery
· response to works within the classroom gallery
· semester reflection and course evaluation.
