Electronic Portfolio Program

DATELINE February, 2021 - NVMI is in the nascent stages of having all cadets complete an electronic portfolio which provides evidence of successfully meeting the Schoolwide Learner Outcomes (SLOs) for each graduate. An SLO is a statement of what an NVMI graduate should know and be able to do. NVMI has designed its SLOs around the four NVMI pillars of ACADEMICS, LEADERSHIP, CITIZENSHIP, and ATHLETICS. The following table lists the SLOs along with the ways NVMI cadets can demonstrate success on each SLO. This is a work in progress, and as students and staff produce further evidence, modifications will be made to this list.
