Electronic Portfolios in Teacher Education Reading Methods Courses.
Piper, Carla Hagen
The question of how to use technology effectively in the assessment of teacher candidates to demonstrate achievement of course objectives based on state certification standards led to the development of the electronic portfolio project at a small university teacher credential program. The process of preparing an electronic portfolio using computer and multimedia technology was examined from the perspective of 12 teacher candidates enrolled in a multiple subject reading methods class. This research was a multiple case study in which qualitative data were obtained through open-ended interviews with the teacher candidates, the course professor, and the computer lab technician, as well as through analysis of the electronic portfolio product. Whether the electronic portfolio could be considered an effective tool for documenting teacher candidate performance and the achievement of course objectives was the primary question investigated in this study.
