At the heart of the TRU – OL Competency based Portfolio assessment process is the evaluation of 8 Competencies that are reflective of TRU's Graduate Attributes.
Your Competency-based Portfolio describes your broader life-based prior learning (versus that of a Course-based Portfolio, which draws upon your learning relevant to a specific course) according to 8 Competencies.
A Competency-based Portfolio includes the following components:
1. Cover Letter
2. Table of Contents
3. Autobiographical Resume
4. Categorization of Learning (categorization of broad subjects of learning)
5. Discussion of Learning (demonstration of the 8 critical competencies)
6. Evidence (supporting documentation)
7. Evidence Description and Listing
Upon recommendation to create a Competency-based Portfolio, students are given guidance and detailed information to assist in portfolio creation.
