Teaching portfolios give teachers an opportunity to showcase their skills, growth, and impact in the classroom. Many teachers incorporate Elevate data into their teaching portfolios in order to demonstrate progress toward their professional goals and impact. Doing so can help teachers strengthen their portfolios in ways that benefit:
Professional development requirements and/or certifications
For example, teachers can:
Share qualitative data from Elevate reports that describe how students experience the learning environment in their classroom. For example, you may provide examples of constructive feedback from your students and explain how you’ve used their feedback to shift your teaching.
Correlate Elevate data with student outcomes, such as test scores, grades, participation, and attendance, by documenting any notable improvements.
Share anecdotes and stories from your improvement journey. Personal narratives can provide context to the data and make your portfolio more compelling.
