Assessment and Assurance of Learning Using E-Portfolios
Papp, Raymond
Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v3 Feb 2014
Traditional paper portfolios have been used to assess student work for performance and employment purposes for decades. The advent of electronic portfolios incorporating audio, video, hyperlinked documents and scanned images takes the use of portfolios to a new level. Evaluators can use these easily accessible portfolios to gauge student performance while the portfolios themselves permit rapid and immediate inclusion and reconfiguration of portfolio data by the owner. Electronic portfolios are also useful for accreditation purposes to measure and assess student learning outcomes. Rubrics can also be incorporated into today's digital portfolios to permit fair and consistent evaluation by assessors. Numerous e-portfolio vendors currently exist and choosing the best one involves careful planning and consideration of current and future intended uses.
