At the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, each intern is to complete the portfolio review. The portfolio is where each intern collects artifacts from their teaching experience and documents how it pertains to one or more of the MUST outcomes. After the portfolio is successfully completed, interns will have to arrange a day and time with a MUST administrator or faculty member to explain how each artifact relates to the MUST outcomes.

See the MUST handbook for more information about the OAE exams, Taskstream, and the  Portfolio.
