Multi-Dimensional Recruiting: Electronic Evidence Breaking Traditions
Watkins, Paul; Roberts, Ruth Ann
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n3 Jul-Sep 2009
An electronic performance portfolio can lift a candidate off the resume page and on to a virtual stage. A principal can literally watch as the teacher candidate performs on the classroom stage. Internet recruitment and candidate selection is becoming an important tool to make hiring decisions. To a great degree electronic performance portfolios have the capacity to demonstrate charisma, innovative personalities, and positive values that fit the instructional environment (Kennedy's dimensions of qualified competent teachers). Understanding and interpreting student assessment results is another criterion that electronic portfolio examination allows the principal to determine. Administrators filling classroom vacancies cannot afford to ignore the importance of teacher assessment skill in their content area. The online performance portfolio works for both the teacher candidate and the employer to accomplish a quality hiring decision.
