SDA Portfolio Students Assessment

Name of Student: Lakeisha Jackson Name of Chair: Dr. Michele Murray Date: April 25, 2014

Overall, including both the portfolio and the portfolio conversation, how well do you feel you demonstrated accomplishment of the SDA programs learning outcomes: Complete Accomplishment Comments: Now that I have delivered my presentation, I confident that my process in creating my eportfolio was very important in my ability to dialogue with the committee and answer their questions utilizing the SDA learning outcomes and artifacts in my portfolio. Most notably, I was able to provide responses that connected my artifacts and LO # 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 &10 very well. That is strong positive feedback that I received from my committee during our feedback session. I appreciate my portfolio chairperson, Dr. Michele Murray, for giving me that piece of advice during one of our two meetings that we had in the weeks leading up to my presentation. Additionally, in hearing the depth and thoughtfulness of the committees questions, I can see that each member dedicated a significant amount of time reviewing each artifact and the written narratives and pulling out my main three key themes: my leap of faith in pursuing graduate school and a graduate assistantship, my leadership during the program and my salient identity as a woman of color. My committee provided strong constructive feedback encouraging me to give more depth in responses in the future. It was noted that during my presentation that I gave strong comprehensive answers that provided breadth. This is feedback that I will be mindful of as I move forward and further integrate my learning during the SDA program into my full-time professional role. Showing expertise in an area is not only okay; it is expected in (some) professional and academic spaces. Furthermore, the committee noted my difficulty at times in answering questions about my challenges and areas of improvement. I saw this in connection to questions that aligned with LO # 1, 7 & 9. This is in part due to expectations that I have of myself. I intentionally take a strengths-based approach in all areas of my life. It will take time, reflection, and guidance from trusted mentors and advisors to work through how I discuss challenges and areas of improvement in my growth and development. It meant a lot to me to have a strong supportive audience to experience this presentation with me. Approximately 40 attendees came, which is a little exuberant of me, but my community and network are a big part of my identity as a graduate student, professional, family member, friend and so forth. Having people from all of those areas of my life attend this occasion was extremely meaningful. Please also complete the assessment of specific learning outcomes on the reverse side. 1 5 4 3 2 1 Minimal Accomplishment
