The Portfolio Defense is the capstone activity of a whole-school performance assessment system, pulling knowing, doing and reflecting into one place, into one moment. It is a student’s final exhibition, and the culmination of a 4-year journey. Similar to a masters defense or professional presentation, students stand before a panel of peers, educators, and mentors to demonstrate the depth of their knowing, doing, and reflecting as evidenced by their academic work and self-reflection.
