Portfolio Project

The Portfolio Project is an initiative of NYSATA that was developed in cooperation with the New York State Education Department. It is an authentic assessment tool that is based on The New York State Learning Standards and provides students with an opportunity to present portfolios of their work at regional adjudication sites. The student portfolios provide evidence of understanding and student learning in the visual arts. Feedback is available for the student, parent, school, and community. The Portfolio Project can provide an authentic source for data on student success in the visual arts.

2021 Portfolio Project (VIRTUAL Adjudications)

Portfolio Project 2021 will be entirely virtual!
To streamline the assembly and submission of student portfolios, NYSATA has developed Google Slides templates that follow the Portfolio Project guidelines and rubric. Elementary, Middle Level, Commencement, Elective, and Major-Sequence templates can be accessed at https://www.nysata.org/portfolio-project.

The links to the Student Portfolio Slide Templates will “force a copy” and students will be able to edit their own slides for submission. Upon registration, the link to the student submission slides must be entered into the registration form. Please note that the Google slideshow is a live document, and students will be able to continue to edit their documents even after their registration is submitted. 

Here is how it will work!

  • Nominating art educator must be a NYSATA member. Click here for information on becoming a member or renewing your membership.
  • Find all materials needed at https://www.nysata.org/portfolio-project.
  • Please check with your region coordinator to find out if there is a maximum number of students per teacher for your region.
  • Select your students; have students download a copy of the instructions and start to assemble their Google Slide virtual portfolio. 
  • Register students in your regional registration form, submitting the link to their Google Slide virtual portfolio.
  • Once the registration closes, you will receive detailed instructions for the adjudication from the Portfolio Project Coordinator in your region.
  • Please direct any questions or requests for special accommodations to your regional coordinator.
