Graduate Comprehensive Portfolio

Definition: The Master’s Comprehensive Portfolio is a formal, organized set of documents and artifacts demonstrating the teacher’s growth, as a self-directed, reflective practitioner.

Rationale: The Master’s Comprehensive Portfolio is intended to provide tangible evidence that the candidate has met each of the advanced competencies required for the degree. The portfolio is not a collection of everything the candidate has done in the master’s program; it is a carefully selected, organized set of entries demonstrating achievement of each of the standards. Candidates with current National Board Certification in the concentration area have demonstrated advanced competencies and are exempted from the required portfolio.

Standards and directions for completing the portfolio for the graduate programs in special education can be found on Virtual School of the Smokies.  Portfolios are submitted on Taskstream
