MAP (My Assessment Portfolio) is the Lesley University name of the assessment tool managed and operated by LiveText. Lesley University students use the MAP system to create electronic portfolios, or ePortfolios, on the LiveText website. All Master's degree programs within the Graduate School of Education (GSOE), with exception for Individually Designed Master’s and PhD students, are required to complete an ePortfolio to document their work and demonstrate learning throughout their program of study. Students in the Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences (GSASS) and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) are currently exempt from the MAP requirement.


Each program requires key assignments to be submitted to each course for assessment. In addition to required portfolios, students may create their own professional and personal portfolios to share with others outside of the University. These portfolios are often used during job searches and can provide examples of the student’s best work for prospective employers.


Your initial five-year subscription will be created through the keycode registration process for the MAP ePortfolio account via LiveText. There is a one-time, non-refundable subscription fee of $150.00 associated with MAP ePortfolio use. This fee will be posted on your tuition bill. Financial Aid can be used to cover this fee.
