Portfolios are comprehensive ways to assess students’ knowledge and skills in which students use a variety of artifacts and media to demonstrate what they know and can do. Since their emergence, portfolios have offered an alternative to traditional educational evaluation methods, and are touted for their ability to capture an authentic and holistic image of an individual’s experiences, competencies, progress, goals, and accomplishments over periods of time. Participants are invited to explore the portfolio capstone experience for graduate students in OSU's College Student Services Administration (CSSA) program. Dr. Jessica White will facilitate discussion around the development of this innovative student-driven capstone and its effects on graduate students' experiences and learning. Electronic samples of completed portfolios will be shared.
