Admission to Licensure Program (PEP)
Please Note: Admission to the COEHS does not guarantee admission to PEP and your licensure program
Portfolio artifacts and rubrics:
- Portfolio artifacts all can be generated in professional course work. All courses are aligned with the standards and course syllabi indicate which of the standards are assessed in course assignments.
- Rubrics for each standard are included behind the tab for that standard. If you choose to use a course assignment for your portfolio, it is your responsibility to have the course instructor assess your understanding of that particular standard by rating, signing, and dating the rubric for that standard.
- An assignment in a course not listed for a standard that demonstrates your knowledge and understanding of that particular standard may be included as an artifact, but you must have the course instructor complete the rubric.
