Implementation of Portfolios as a Programmatic Global Assessment Measure

Studies of assessment show that three elements—multiple assessments, assessments over time and those with multiple evaluators—provide the best strategy for valid, reliable and global assessments of student competence. Competency-based education (CBE) experts define the use of portfolios for assessment as a best practice.

Successful implementation of a global portfolio assessment is dependent on strong collaboration among administrators, faculty and students, along with faculty and student development
