Scaling Up Projects: Assessment Project • Goal – To study the relationship between strong ePortfolio usage over time and grades and overall student engagement as shown in NSSE results. • We will work with our programmers to define a new group of “super users” to track • We will identify their first log-in date and their University ID so we can compare to other reports
  • 13. “The ePortfolio showed me so much. When I went back and read the introduction to myself, I honestly felt so proud of myself. I didn’t think that whatever I was thinking to myself or what was wandering in my brain would be well written in the introduction. But I was impressed, by what I wrote…This ePortfolio showed a great part of me, I even saw it when I attached the resume, I didn’t realize all my accomplishments I have done in high school. This actually made me reflect back on how well I have done these past few years, and I hope that at Pace I will reach for everything I am set to achieve!” -Kenya V., Pace Prep student Scaling Up Projects: Pace Prep 2013
