Using ePortfolios to Assess Student Achievement within an Online Library and Information Studies Program
Angel, Christine M.; Robinson, Gina
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v11 n3-4 p330-345 2017
As a result of suggestions from the American Library Association (ALA) the Division of Library and Information Science (DLIS) program at St. John's University implemented an end-of-program electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) requirement. The purpose of this ePortfolio is to provide information on student proficiency in the eight ALA core competencies to our external accrediting agency--the ALA Committee on Accreditation (CoA). This article will discuss how a Library and Information Studies (LIS) faculty member and a New Media and Communications Specialist worked together in developing the ePortfolio as an assessment tool for ALA reaccreditation within an online LIS program.
