Work submitted for 1 st semester Jan 17 th – Completed portfolios are sent to OSPI (state of Washington) If a portfolio is incomplete, sub-standard or is ineligible due to not enough HSPE test attempts (2 minimum), then the portfolio will be submitted in JUNE (Results will not arrive before graduation).
If you have a 2 nd portfolio We will work on your 2 nd portfolios 2 nd semester for those that need it. If you finish with the 1 st portfolio in the 1 st semester, let me know and I can get you started on the 2 nd portfolio. However, if your 1 st portfolio isn’t well edited and proofread, then you will need to fix it first. If you are only doing one portfolio, for the 2 nd semester I will have you doing 4 extra “augmentation” prompts. That way, if your initial portfolio is just below passing, you can submit these additional essays as an “augmented” portfolio in June. It is also good practice for the HSPE test in spring.
Final submission date ALL eligible portfolios that were not sent earlier will be sent in late May. Deadlines will follow later. If a portfolio never reaches a high enough standard to where it can be sent, it will not be sent since you only have one attempt.
Don’t forget your alternatives! (Do them as soon as possible) SAT / ACT HSPE tests (in the spring of 2014)
