PWRful Demonstrations of Learning


​When students engage in PWRful Demonstrations of Learning they:

  • build portfolios of collected and curated artifacts and/or 
  • showcase their knowledge, skills, and abilities in a presentation.


Sample artifacts that could be included in a learner’s portfolio:

Promising Practices - Capstone and Junior/Senior Projects

Senior Capstone -  Center Consolidated District

Students in Center start collecting evidence for their capstone process in 6th grade.  In 11th grade, they complete a culminating capstone, and in 12th grade, they complete an Exit Interview. These presentations are in front of staff, parents, peers, and community members.


Digital Portfolios – D49

Note to students: “Digital Portfolios are finally coming to the POWER Zone and we want you to be the first to hear about it! Below is a Slides presentation explaining what the plan is and how to get started, though most of you will be creating these in your Pathways or REACH classes. There is also a quick "cheat sheet" that can be printed for quick reference when creating your Google Site. We want to hear your feedback about this process, so be on the lookout for surveys being sent your way throughout the year. Thanks!”
