College of Education Graduate Portfolio

Because of Dallas Baptist University’s quest for meaningful assessment of graduate students, a portfolio assessment is required in all College of Education graduate programs. The process of creating a portfolio is explained in the College of Education Graduate Portfolio Manual. The portfolio allows students to present information about themselves as learners and to document growth over a period of time.

 

The portfolio should be a collection of artifacts accompanied by self-reflections that not only help learners to understand and extend learning, but also invite the reader of the portfolio to gain insights about the learners. Please refer to the Portfolio Manual for appropriate procedures to follow in the preparation of the portfolio.  Students must register for the Professional Portfolio course as prescribed in their degree plans during the semester in which they will present their portfolio to the Educator Preparation Board. The Educator Preparation Board is a group of experienced and widely successful educators from Dallas Baptist University and the Metroplex. Practicing teachers, administrators, consultants, superintendents, guidance directors, personnel directors, and Educational Region Service Center personnel, as well as DBU professors and administrators volunteer their time for this highly selective process. The Educator Preparation Board serves as the College of Education Graduate Programs advisory board and meets three times a year to assess graduate students' professional portfolios.
