Student Progress Portfolio.
Community Coll. of Vermont, Montpelier.
The Community College of Vermont has developed a Student Progress Portfolio designed to help students become self-reliant and continuous learners. The Portfolio is divided into four primary sections: Assessment, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. It is intended to be used as a handbook by either groups or individuals to establish educational goals and priorities and develop techniques for their achievement. The Assessment section provides exercises to enable the student to identify personal and educational goals, personal attributes, and preferred learning style, and provides a method for prioritizing those goals. The Planning section introduces a variety of learning models, e.g., Clusters, Work Experience Programs, Classroom Instruction, Independent Study, and Experiential Models. Procedures are outlined for degree planning and course selection. The Implementation section presents ideas and procedures to follow to identify course objectives and make full use of educational resources. Evaluation is the fourth stage in the learning process and the Portfolio provides a set of directed questions to help the student evaluate learning experiences in the context of personal goals. (DR)
