COMM Professional Portfolio Evaluation Procedures

 

Evaluation Procedures:

  1. Each student will be assigned two departmental evaluators.
     

  2. By Wednesday, February 1st, 2017, each senior portfolio must be ready for evaluation by the two assigned COMM faculty members.  The evaluation will be guided by the Evaluation Rubric and will use a 5 point scale.
     

  3. Evaluation will NOT involve "re-grading" artifacts but will, rather, focus primarily on the students' understanding of how goals have been met and demonstrated in the artifacts as revealed in reflection statements.
     

  4. Once each faculty evaluator has scored each artifactfor a portfolio, the two evaluators will meet to discuss their scores and reach a "consensus" score for each. These scores will determine the portfolio grade and will be recorded for assessment purposes.  The evaluators will also prepare comments to accompany the scores as feedback to the student.
     

  5. An acceptable portfolio will achieve a 3.0 or better on each artifact.
     

  6. Results of portfolio evaluations will be available to students by February 28 or before.  Should a student's portfolio receive less than a passing score, that student will have until March 24 to make revisions and correct deficiencies at which time the evaluators will review the portfolio for a second time.  Students who do not pass the portfolio on the second attempt can expect to register for and repeat COMM 421 at a later time.
