Hillsdale High School Digital Portfolio System

As part of its effort to redesign itself from a large comprehensive high school into three semi-autonomous Smaller Learning Communities (which began in 2003), Hillsdale High School sought the consultation of SCALE to adapt the Envision Schools College Success Portfolio system for its own academic program in 2008-09. Although the school already had an established Senior Exhibition (research project) that is required of all graduating seniors, it moved toward a graduation portfolio system (“Digital Portfolio”) to support students’ engagement in powerful learning across the content areas. Through its collaboration with SCALE, Hillsdale created its own set of performance outcomes, scoring rubrics, and tasks across the core content areas.
