The professional porfolio option is available only in the Reading, Literacy & Learning and School Librarianship Master of Education programs.
The Professional Portfolio, SLIB 691, is the culminating experience and exit requirement for the program. Students are scaffolded by their advisor throughout the program regarding professional portfolio requirements. During their final semester of enrollment, students are required to develop and present a professional portfolio which documents their mastery of program standards and highlights their growth throughout the program. Students will enroll in READ 691 or SLIB 691, one (1) credit hour and may receive the grade of pass (P) / not pass (NP) /Satisfactory Profress (SP) and it will not be used in calculating the grade point average (GPA). A grade of incomplete (I) may not be assigned. A student who earns a Not Pass is allowed to retake 691 once. Should the student earn a second Not Pass, the student will be dismissed from the graduate program. Continuous enrollment is required until completion with a maximum of one credit with the grade of P counted toward degree requirements. Students must have already filed the Application for Graduate Degree to be eligible to enroll in READ 691 or SLIB 691.
