Abstract

Electronic portfolios have become increasingly popular. The value of a portfolio, though, depends on how, when, and why students create, submit, and have their portfolios evaluated. In the following paper, we describe how we redesigned a program’s assessment/evaluation plan around the use of electronic portfolios focusing on the larger assessment/evaluation framework first and the technology second.
