                                             The Learning Portfolio

Student Name:                                                Date:

Learning Portfolios are graded in the following areas: Integrative essay (Reflective narrative), content for each
standard, artifact entries that meet standard criteria, APA format, grammar/proofreading, coherence, and
electronic format. Students must receive “Acceptable” or “Target” scores in all 10 standards. All standards
scored as “Unacceptable” will require revision.

                                    Evaluation of Content for Each Standard

Target: The student’s essay clearly communicates that the student has mastered the standard. The student uses
specific “indicators” from the standard to communicate how well he/she mastered the knowledge, skills, or
dispositions of the particular standard. Evidence that the student has mastered the standard is clearly provided
through all of the following:
            1. The student’s essay contains the following:
                     The knowledge, skills and dispositions learned that will assist him or her as a future
                        administrator.
                     New information acquired that changed his or her knowledge and understanding of the
                        “key indicator" under discussion.
                     What was learned about himself or herself and his or her ability as a leader regarding the
                        concepts examined in the standard.
                     What was learned in experiences (artifacts) that proved helpful in examining the standard.
            2. References from the research and theory knowledge base are cited to help explain the knowledge
                base mastered by the student.
            3. References to artifacts are included where appropriate. The artifacts are clearly connected to the
                standard and show that the student has mastered the concept indicators under consideration. A
                minimum of two appropriate artifacts are required for each standard essay.
            4. Correct APA format is used in the essay.
            5. Correct grammar, sentence structure, transitions, and proofreading is evident.

Acceptable The student uses specific “indicators” from the standard to communicate how well he/she mastered
the knowledge, skills, or dispositions of the particular standard. Evidence of developing mastery is provided,
however, one or two of the above are not well written or insufficiently developed to show complete mastery.

Unacceptable The student does not provide sufficient information to clearly show that he or she has sufficient
mastery of the standard. Indicators may be discussed, but much of the evidence is too superficially connected to
the standard, that is, the research/theory base is not well developed or the artifacts are not clearly connected to
the standard. Students may also receive this evaluation if there are major problems with writing style or APA
format.
