According to CACREP, a
systematic student evaluation as described in the 2009 CACREP Accreditation Manual, pgs. 87-88 is required. The CMHC
program uses a professional identity portfolio to 1) provide an ongoing and
systemic assessment and 2) engage students in a process of creating and
defining their professional identity.
While the iWebfolio is an electronic portfolio
it also serves as the assessment protocol the CMHC program has chosen for its
student progress data management system. This system allows students to be
active online participants in multiple areas of their college experience
including course instruction, field experiences, and sharing of assessment
The CMHC program is one of a few UNF programs
that are in a pilot phase of implementation of the iWebfolio. Therefore,
students in the current CMHC cohort will be granted their portfolio license at
no additional cost.
With the introduction of the iWebfolio students will have the option of
maintaining this portfolio after graduation.
It can then be changed to reflect any change in their professional goals
and any part of it can be made available to prospective employers, professional
schools or other professional needs.
iWebfolio, the professional portfolio is a collection of
experience-based materials and reflective information that demonstrate the
various dimensions of the student counselor’s work, philosophy, abilities, and
dispositions. The goal of the portfolio is to have student counselors analyze
their various learning experiences and to then synthesize their learning in a
way that demonstrates how diverse activities and insights from the program have
contributed to their competence and professional identity. Therefore this
portfolio is as much a process as it is a product.
The iWebfolio should be a well-organized and
attractive presentation of professional materials that represent the student
counselor’s “best work.” It should be
organized corresponding to the CMHC specialty themes. Sub-themes are left to
the discretion of the individual student, but should make a statement about the
individual’s standards of quality and the sense of self that one brings to the
The CMHC iWebfolio is designed around the six
CMHC specialty domains with the eight core curricular experiences imbedded.
Additionally it includes feedback on the developmental progression of the
clinical experience, a section of personal growth, a section on professional
identity and a final portfolio assessment.
