Checkpoint templates:   Require submission of key artifacts in licensure classes and a reflective self-analysis at 3 transition points
OFS template:   Used to manage observation and evaluations of major field experiences
edTPA template:   Used to store and submit materials for edTPA (student teaching project)
Templates and key artifact lists are found on the reverse.
