What is a portfolio?

An accumulation of evidence about individual proficiencies, especially in relation to explicit standards and rubrics, used in evaluation of competency as a teacher or in another professional school role. Contents might include end-of-course evaluations and tasks used for instructional or student teaching experience purposes such as projects, journals and observations by faculty, videos, comments by school and clinical faculty, and samples of student work. Portfolios can be electronic or hard copy versions.
