Portfolio System

Life and Ministry Development is at the heart of each Antioch School program. The portfolio system includes a comprehensive set of assessments that take place in the context of essential mentoring with local ministry leaders.

The Antioch School portfolio system features the state-of-the-art Motivated Abilities Pattern (MAP) provided by SIMA International, Inc. using the System for Identifying Motivated Abilities (SIMA®). This service has been specially packaged and priced for Antioch School students. Students are expected to obtain a MAP at the beginning of their programs because it is a reference tool for all personal life and ministry development plans.

The Antioch School also provides for each student a portfolio in BILD Cloud for the posting, review, and approval of demonstrations of competencies.

SIMA MAP

Antioch School students are required to complete a MAP during their program. There are three ways students can obtain a MAP.

  • 1. Consultant Assessed MAP (recommended)

A Consultant Assessed MAP is created through a highly individualized process. The process includes statements that the student writes about themselves and a one-on-one interview with a SIMA Professional Coach. With both of these data points, the SIMA Biographer will create a completely unique MAP. After the student has received their MAP, the coach will conduct a personalized Feedback Session to explore their MAP and answer any questions. This is the only MAP certified by SIMA.

  • 2. Computer Assessed MAP

A Computer Assessed MAP is generated from a computer-based analysis of statements that the student writes about themselves. Accuracy is dependent on what the student writes—how well they give details of their actions. After the student has received their MAP, a SIMA Professional Coach will conduct a personalized Feedback Session to explore their MAP and answer any questions.

  • 3. Self Assessed MAP

A Self Assessed MAP is created by students as they work through the step-by-step process laid out in the booklet, Identifying Who You Are Designed by Be. The accuracy and detail of this MAP are dependent on the amount of effort, understanding, and thoroughness put in the process. This MAP option requires the most time and effort on the student’s part.

SIMA MAP Costs

The Cost of the Consultant Assessed MAP is $1250 and is included in the Portfolio System Fee for degree students. By default, certificate students will complete a Self Assessed MAP, which is free. Students may request to change the type of MAP they will complete.
