Many undergraduate and graduate programs use a digital portfolio process as an assessment method for demonstration of competence. Our competency based programs combine theory with application to professional practice. Students work within their professional environment supported by theoretical constructs of competency domains. Competencies are characterized as behaviors, knowledge, skills, and abilities exhibited in professional practice, which can be measured, enhanced, and improved through learning. Competencies should not be static or fixed, but are continually enhanced through academic engagement, experiential learning, and ongoing practice and development. Core competencies are areas of focus upon which future learning and professional practice are developed. Demonstration of competence impacts the success of individuals and organizations. Using digital portfolios complete with digital artifacts to demonstrate competence enhances learning and demonstrated performance improvement.
