The School of Education at Southern Nazarene University believes that the
portfolio, as prescribed by the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation,
National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Oklahoma
State Department of Education, provides ways to assess the growth of individual
candidates. It is a collaborative effort between faculty, the candidate, and
his/her peers. The assessment provided is multidimensional in that processes,
perceptions and products are evaluated. The portfolio represents the growth of
each candidate as he/she progresses through the program.
Candidates are encouraged to reflect on their experiences to gain insight and
to identify strengths and weaknesses that are a part of their individual
performance. Realistic goals are set to help the candidate reach his/her highest
potential within the framework of the education program at Southern Nazarene
University. Because the emphasis of the portfolio is on displaying the growth of
the candidate, the portfolio is called the Growth Portfolio.
