Performance Evidence - Portfolio Guide

The teacher education program must ensure candidates are prepared to meet the Idaho Standards for Initial Certification of Professional School Personnel. Included in these standards are the Idaho Core Teaching Standards which all teachers must meet and specific foundation or enhancement standards specific to the discipline area the candidate is seeking endorsement.

 

Portfolio Guide

To show evidence of these standards, candidates will upload scored work into their Teacher Education e-portfolio. To facilitate this, each faculty member is requested to remind teacher education candidates in their course to retain evaluated work and upload it into their e-portfolio. The following one-page document can be distributed to teacher education candidates as needed.
