Portfolio Reviews are a catalog requirement for undergraduate architecture students. 

THIRD YEAR FALL PORTFOLIO REVIEW PROCESS

Portfolio Review Date
The Fall Portfolio Reviews are scheduled on December 14, 2018.
 
Portfolio Review Panel
The Fall Portfolio Review panel will include three reviewers: the student’s studio instructor, one reviewer from the student’s final review, and a third reviewer. 

Portfolio Review Pin Up
Students will bring their academic portfolio to the Portfolio Review.

In designated spaces, students will pin up:

  • A representative selection of their work from the current semester Intermediate Studio III. It will be similar to the previous week’s final review pin-up.

  • Include the entirety of the current semester process, not just the final product.

Studio instructors will provide additional pin-up details.
 
Refer to the Fall Portfolio Review Form for a list of competencies the reviewers will expect to see in the academic portfolio and pin-up.
 
Portfolio Review Process
Students will be assigned an individual feedback session by the studio instructor.
 
The student will present the pinned-up work in five minutes or less, then will exit the room.
 
After the student exits the room, the panel will review the academic portfolio and discuss the pinned-up work.
 
The student will return to the room to receive feedback from the review panel.
 
Portfolio Review Outcome
The panel will assign on track or needs improvement for each competency on the Portfolio Assessment Form.
 
The Undergraduate Office will keep the original completed form. The student will receive a copy for their records. The outcome is distinct from the semester studio grade. 
 
The Fall Portfolio Assessment will not prevent a student from advancing into Intermediate Studio IV in the spring semester. The assessment is meant to provide a benchmark for students as they progress in the studio sequence.
