The Portfolio is a rigorous form of assessment which allows students to demonstrate mastery of learning outcomes associated with a college course based on learning gained from multiple venues including:
A prior learning portfolio describes and documents relevant knowledge gained from experiential learning and equates that knowledge to equivalent academic courses. The portfolio consists of a brief experiential learning resume, a learning narrative, and supporting documentation of verified learning. Portfolios are assessed by qualified faculty to determine mastery of the equivalent college course.
The 25% residency requirement of the College cannot be satisfied through portfolio.
