Examples of Evidentiary Items

The selection of the evidentiary items to include in your e-Portfolio will depend on the nature of the competency. Some examples of potential documents to include are given below. Be sure that each item you include in your final e-Portfolio represents your best work. If in doubt, consult your e-Portfolio advisor. Again, it must be clear from the Statement of Competency (in which you introduce and discuss the evidentiary items for a specific competency) exactly how and why the evidence relates to the specific area of competence. This list below is merely illustrative.

  • essays, reports, research papers
  • assignment evaluations, taking into consideration care for privacy of instructors and fellow students (for example the competency for effective communication may be addressed in part through an instructor's evaluation of a presentation)
  • analytical papers (such as applying a program area to your work, e.g., assessing your library's organizational culture using course criteria, critiquing a library strategic plan to demonstrate knowledge of planning)
  • critical notes
  • article summaries and analyses
  • professional publications
  • database files
  • Elluminate/Collaborate recordings
  • video capture of an individual or group presentation; media files; PowerPoint slide presentations
  • performance appraisals (for instance a written document commending your ability to work in teams, although not sufficient in and of itself, may add weight to other evidence of your collaborative skills)
  • professional development (for example participation in and a discussion of your learning from an institute on effective teaching may be one part of the objective on staff development)
  • project samples
  • photos of library displays, events
