Portfolio Guidelines

The portfolio process is only to be used for the purpose of determining if a student met the HS Exit Standard and not for getting credit or passing the course. We are still not sure of the process for this year as all tests are new and there are discussions about the merit of keeping the exit standards. Until those decisions are final, it would be prudent to have the student keep a portfolio of their work. The Scale scores and Achievement levels will not be available until sometime in October 2013 or later so a determination of whether a student met the gateway or not will be delayed. Once those scores are available, the portfolio could become an essential element of making a gateway determination.
