  • Session 3, Room: Bonaire 6, 1:40p.m. - 2:15p.m Abstract : This session will present a review on the ePortfolio system and the characteristics of using the system as an assessment method. It will then focus on a case where ePortfolio is used for evaluation for an interdisciplinary studies program. Preliminary evaluation data and recommendations will be presented for future research. Steps * Program Track: Technology & Emerging Learning Environments * Areas of Interest: Blended Learning * Emphasis: Practical Application * Target Audience: Multiple Audience * Institutional Level: Program/Institution * Session Type: Individual Presentation (30 Minutes) Objectives * Identify the definition, purposes, and characteristics of an ePortfolio system for educational purposes * Compare and contrast ePortfolio and standardized tests as assessment tools * Discuss the preparation and implementation process of a program-wide ePortfolio system * Identify the obstacles and issues in the implementation process * Provide recommendations for other institutions to adopt ePortfolio as an authentic student-centered assessment tool Description (300 words) ePortfolios are personalized multimedia presentation of work examples with reflective annotations and commentary that shows a student's learning and development (Carliner, 2005; Mason, Pegler, & Weller, 2004). There are different uses of ePortfolios in the educational context, e.g. for developmental purposes, presentation purposes, and assessment purposes. The benefits of using an ePortfolio system for evaluation are many. ePortfolios enable students to take responsibility for their own learning. Second, it provides both the instructor and students a complete picture of the course. Moreover, the portability and adaptability of the output has obvious benefits for the pursuit of lifelong learning. At the University of Central Florida, Sakai, an ePortfolio system, has been piloted for interdisciplinary undergraduate courses as a program evaluation tools. The process of implementing an ePortfolio system for evaluation can be summarized as "collect, select, reflect, and present." References * Carliner, S. (2005).
