Portfolio Requirements

All Cross-categorical Special Education license candidates will complete an electronic portfolio.  Contributions to the portfolio will take place throughout the duration of the program and will prove to be a valuable tool for interviewing purposes, self-reflection, and demonstration of skills.  The portfolio is a longitudinal account of the educator’s learning and growth.

The purpose of the portfolio is to:

  1. demonstrate professional growth, understanding, and application of course content
  2. demonstrate the impact of newly acquired knowledge, skills, and dispositions on PK-12 student learning.
  3. demonstrate competency in the Council for Exceptional Children Standards and Wisconsin State Teacher Standards.

Portfolios aligned with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Standards are required by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and Viterbo University.
