Work teams of expert educators from all levels of education in Wisconsin developed the concepts, philosophy, requirements, assessment rubrics, procedures, and guidebooks for the WMEAP.  Designed to be comparable  to the NBPTS process, the work teams:

  • Consulted with national experts who helped develop the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
  • Consulted with other state experts who have designed portfolio assessments for their state's licensure.
  • Received the services and resources of the Interstate New Teachers' Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) who have developed a process for training assessors in the review of the teacher portfolios.
  • Obtained the leadership of a nationally recognized expert in all these processes who also was involved in developing the Interstate School Leadership Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards.

In order to ensure validity and reliability of the WMEAP process, WMEAP assessors are trained and approved by the DPI.
