By the end of your graduate program, you should be able to show what you’ve learned, and your portfolio will ensure that you do just that. The portfolio requirements and process varies depending on your program.

In the ACHEA program, you are required to successively complete the course ADLDSP 886 Developing your ePortfolio in ACHEA. You can register for the course once you have completed 27 credits.
We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with all of the materials pertaining to the ePortfolio process. The earlier you start your ePortfolio, the easier the process will be.

Educational Administration & Supervision Portfolio
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires all candidates in professional education programs to develop a portfolio. You can share this e-portfolio with professors, classmates, and other groups for assessment and collaboration. It is designed to be a developmental process and allow you opportunity to reflect on your knowledge, skills and experiences as you move through the program. Use the platform provided in D2L to develop and maintain your portfolio.
Note: Upon completion of coursework required for licensure, all applicants must complete and submit for review an ePortfolio detailing their competencies of the UWM core guiding principles and the UWM-WI state standards for administrators. Two members of the Administrative Leadership faculty will evaluate your ePortfolio during the final semester of your program.
The ePortfolio webpage includes all the resources that you’ll need to complete your ePortfolio.
