The Paraeducator Portfolio Assessment process is a method for paraeducators to meet the Title I requirements of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. The Portfolio Assessment allows paraeducators to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in reading, writing, mathematics, and their ability to assist with instruction in the same areas, through a process that honors their successful work and professional learning experiences. Paraeducators must have (1) experience as a paraeducator which includes assisting with instruction; and (2) permission from their school district to be eligible for the Portfolio Assessment Pathway. This guidebook details the assessment process.
