  • Students are responsible for assessing their own growth in the Core Competencies. At Yale we are using to help build your 4-year core competency growth portfolio.  

  • Students are required to complete two formal reflections per semester. This will mean at least 16 formal reflections by the time you graduate which will be used as part of your grade 12 Careers Capstone Project (a graduation requirement).  

  • Students can complete a formal reflection based on any one or multiple assignments, projects, or class activities from any one or multiple classes from that semester.  

  • It is goal is to try to cover all the core competencies gradually over the 4 years and demonstrate your growth.    

  • Your teachers may choose to suggest certain projects or class activities as good evidence of a particular competency. But ultimately it is up to you as an individual to build and choose what this portfolio will look like.
