What is Chalk & Wire?

Chalk & Wire is an online program that allows users to create electronic portfolios. These portfolios can contain a wide variety of information and media, which can then be assessed by other users. From these assessments, reports can be generated in order to tabulate data on the institution level.

One of the main uses for Chalk & Wire here at RIC will be for submitting Observation Reports and Teacher Candidate Work Samples for Student Teaching, however Chalk & Wire can also be used for specific classes.
