5. Who has access to the DDP?
Primarily, the student has access to the developing series of required and selected key performances. Because of the collaborative nature of our learning community the faculty and appropriate staff, whose role is to assist the student with their development, have always had access to their paper and video portfolios in their major department and in the Assessment Center. The same applies to the digital portfolio. No one else has access unless the student provides it to them.
In addition to its contribution to the student's ongoing academic development, the portfolio provides helpful information for the faculty members who write the narrative statement that is part of the student's transcript.
The student also has a private work and storage area for any performances and related materials that they decide to file for their own reference in the portfolio. This area is accessible only to the student.
