The Missouri Professors of Education Administration (MPEA) is pleased to acknowledge that the development of this collection of instructional materials and guidelines for assessing portfolios was made possible by funding from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). In addition to the funding, various individuals at DESE facilitated our communication and cooperation from and with the Interstate School Leaders and Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) and Educational Testing Service (ETS).

This site features instructional materials and guidelines for assessing principal portfolios and sample administrator assessment items tied to the ISLLC standards . New materials are added from time to time.
