Indiana Collaborative PBL Certification Rubric A candidate must provide evidence which meets the Proficient to Advanced Practice Categories. If a candidate s evidence meets the minimum of Progressing the candidate will not satisfy the overall requirement for certification. Artifacts and sources used to support work completed in each of the Domain s must be numbered to correspond with each of the Domains and the sub categories. All materials will be submitted electronically using the template provided. Additional artifacts and sources may be added as an attachment. No materials will be returned to the candidate. Materials will become 4

5 part of an archive for the ICPBL. No materials will be used publicly unless given permission by the candidate. Each domain category requires evidence of how levels have been met or completed. Each domain also requires a rationale and or reflection of the work completed. Certification Rubric Use the ICPBL Certification Rubric as both a guide for what is being reviewed and as a check list for submitting accurate and specific materials required. The rubric serves for the review team as a measure of completion of materials and artifacts submitted.
