The Use of ePortfolios in Evaluating the Curriculum and Student Learning
Fitch, Dale; Peet, Melissa; Reed, Beth Glover; Tolman, Richard
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n3 p37-54 Fall 2008
Portfolios can foster the integration of theory, action, self-reflection, and assessment. Electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) extend this concept by acting as a "content-management system" that facilitates the collecting, considering, sharing, and presenting of learning outcomes with and to others via a digital medium. This article describes the systematic examination of an ePortfolio application under development and illustrates its potential usefulness to not only facilitate and assess individual student learning, but also aid curricular assessment. Our evaluation uncovered organizational, curricular, learning, logistical, and technological issues involved in moving from a linear approach to teaching and learning toward an integrated systems approach.
