Web Portfolio Requirement
Web Portfolio Goal
Every undergraduate music education student will provide evidence of each
behavioral indicator in his/her web portfolio by the end of student teaching.
Behavioral indicators are listed on the Accomplished
Practices page of the portfolio website. The behavioral indicators
are the bulleted points underneath each AP description.
Your Portfolio will be evaluated electronically during each course in
your professional sequence. The course syllabus will let you know when
the illustrations are due.
The professor for the course you are taking conducts the evaluation process
in two steps. First, the individual illustrations are evaluated. Once
the individual illustrations are evaluated, your entire portfolio is evaluated
in reference to whether or not it meets the expectations for the course.
Receiving Portfolio Evaluation Results
Your portfolio evaluations will be emailed to you from the course professor.
Each professor's evaluations are shared and discussed to the entire music education
Portfolios and Grading
Portfolios that are incomplete, or rated as near or below expectations
may result in a grade of "I" for the course for the semester.
Your professor will discuss with you what is needed to have your portfolio
Evaluation procedure for individual AP illustrations:
Each of these components must be present for the illustration to be complete.
The criteria for each component are listed following the component. These
will be evaluated as either "met" or "not met." Any
illustration that does not meet these criteria at the time of evaluation
will not meet expectations (see next section).
- Description of Assignment-should be clear, concise, and list the behavioral
indicator(s) from the AP that are addressed
- Artistic Processes/Medium-should describe the artistic role of the
students in the lesson taught or planned-performing, creating, or responding.
AP's 6, 10, 11, and 12 may not involve children and therefore may not
employ artistic processes, and the illustration should state: "No
artistic processes are addressed in this illustration."
- Rationale-this should describe why the assignment was chosen to illustrate
this AP, and how the illustration illustrates the specific behavioral
indicators listed in the assignment description. Direct reference should
be made to the behavioral indicator(s).
- Illustration-this should present the assignment, and may also present
a student narrative about how the assignment was implemented or developed.
Photos and other media files can go here as well. Media files must enhance
the illustration directly, and be referenced in the narrative.
Criteria for the overall evaluation of the individual course requirements:
- Exceeds expectations-all required AP illustrations are complete, all
illustration sections are appropriately addressed, Rationales are strong
and clear, illustrations are clear and appropriate, all links are working
properly, media files are used to enhance the illustrations
- Meets expectations-all required AP illustrations are complete, all
illustration sections are appropriately addressed, the Rationales are
strong and clear, illustrations are clear and appropriate, all links
are working properly
- Near Expectations-the required AP illustrations are complete, but
one or more of the following deficiencies exist: illustration sections
are not all appropriately addressed, Rationales are weak, illustrations
are not clear and/or appropriate, some links are not working properly
- Below Expectations-the required AP illustrations are not complete
or missing, and one or more of the following deficiencies exist: illustration
sections are not all appropriately addressed, Rationales are weak, illustrations
are not clear and appropriate, some links are not working properly
Sequence for Web Portfolio Development: The Course Requirements
To meet the Web Portfolio goal by the end of student teaching, each music
education undergraduate student is required to have 30 illustrations in
their portfolio. The appropriate music education
course syllabi now list (a) a number of AP illustrations that are required
for that course, (b) the evaluation procedure for the AP illustrations,
and (c) the consequences for not completing the AP illustrations. Here
are the required illustrations:
- MUE 2040 - introduction to the web project, philosophy, resume, goals
and accomplishments, and personal information (optional)
- MUE 3311 - 9 - APs 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, 4.2, 5.1,
6.1, 7.1, 8.1/8.2, 10.1
- MUE 3330 - 9 - APs 1.4, 2.2, 3.2, 4.1, 5.2,
8.4, 10.3, 12.1
- MUE 4140/4940 - 12 - 1.2/1.3, 2.3,
3.3/3.4, 5.3, 6.2, 7.2, 8.3, 10.2, 11.1/11.2, 12.2
