The Antioch School utilizes an extensive, robust portfolio assessment system to provide abundant and multi-layered evidence that its students deserve the degrees that are being granted. Although many competencies may be developed in conjunction with learning opportunities designed for that purpose (particularly in Leadership Series courses), we recognize that students develop in different ways and at different times. Portfolios may include a wide variety of evidence from many learning experiences. For instance, a student may best demonstrate particular competencies associated with a Leadership Series course in an Integrated Ministry Plan rather than in the projects of a particular Leadership Series course.
