The ProTeach Portfolio is an evidence-based assessment designed for teachers seeking the Washington professional certificate. Teachers who hold a residency certificate must meet the passing score set on the ProTeach Portfolio in order to earn their professional certificate. The ProTeach Portfolio evaluates teachers on their ability to impact student learning as stated in the 3 standards —effective teaching, professional development and professional contributions and 12 criteria for the professional certificate approved by the Professional Educator Standards Board.
