    Example of Student Portfolio:
    An example of a student portfolio 'site' (the same kind of site you will be creating) has been provided for you in the Projects link of this site. Go to MPP Example Portfolio and view the materials provided therein. This is one example of how you might prepare your portfolio presentation, it is not meant to be mandatory although the site represents the mandatory elements of your portfolio (i.e., completing and submitting the written portfolio product and also presenting the portfolio through some method of presentation). Please consider the example as a reference guide to help you understand what is required in completing your portfolio experience.

    The example below is provided to show how coursework (including major deliverables) can be presented in a logical 'tabular' format in order to help present the written materials taken during the student's academic experience within the MPP program. This example is not intended to provide an exact requirement in displaying your academic work during your academic career in the program, but rather to show how the information may be displayed in a logical and sequential format.

    The **portfolio presentation**, which is
    a position to evaluate the individual's academic and work performance
    other items of importance as determined by the student and their faculty advisor
    The general flow of the portfolio should begin with MPP course work products, meaning you should being with papers and reports
    video you have developed in MPP courses that represent your integration of the course concepts intorecorded providing an applied subject. You can develop a specific page for this purpose and attach a setoverview of pdf or word documents that display your coursework. Another page can show your presentations you have created in your courses (if any). These presentations can be submitted via powerpoint format and you can include a summary on the page with each submission identifying the importance of the powerpoint to your learning experience. A final page should include evidence of how your academic experience in the MPP program has increased your understanding of public policy principles and how you plan(click on using the knowledge you have gained in the program to aid your future work and career goals.
    The above paragraph represents one way to prepare the portfolio presentation. While the elements identified above should be contained in your portfolio submission, you are free to use the tools available in your project site to develop any form of presentation method (for example expanding upon the specifics outlined above) you feel best represents your ability to express what you have learned in the MPP program and how it relates to your future career goals. For example, you may wish to produce a video presentation detailing your experiences in the program. This would be welcome, but the development of a video does not take the place of a summarized written portfolio product as identified above. In essence the written portfolio product is a required element while the form of presentation of the material can be tailored to your personal preferences.
    "portfolio presentation" link for examples).
    For the presentation, UMD now offers Techsmith Relay to students and faculty (with MyUMassD credentials - username and password). This software product allows for easy-to-use screen capture video recording. Details on the product, including an easy how-to-use video, is available here:

    Welcome to the Example Student Portfolio Site home page.
    This can be the example of the home page (landing page) for the student. The essential elements are the courses taken page and the portfolio presentation page. Here, each of the two essential elements are created as separate pages within the student portfolio (as noted below). You can do this as well, or you can combine the information on single page if you wish. You may also want to give some introductory statements (an overview) before providing the courses taken repository and the portfolio presentation. The essential, mandatory aspects are the two elements: courses taken repository (example below) and the portfolio presentation.
