An e-Portfolio is an electronic collection of evidence that shows your learning journey over time. … Evidence may include writing samples, photos, videos, research projects, observations by mentors and peers, and/or reflective thinking.

  34. 34. Design Questions to Consider • Purpose? (to demonstrate best work, growth, proficiency, readiness, etc.) • Collect and Select – What will be Included? Who will decide? – How will it be organized? (create a Table of Contents) • Reflect – Which pieces will students reflect on and when? – What kinds of reflection questions will they address? – What format? (short response, reflective essay, letter, etc.) • Present and Share – How and when will this happen? – When and with whom will the portfolio be shared? • Assessment – What to evaluate? When to evaluate? – How to assess? (rubrics, checklists, etc.) Who will assess?
  35. 35. Looking at Portfolio Design • Do students choose their own topics? • Do students get peer and instructor response to drafts before a piece of writing is graded? • Do students write to different audiences? • Do students reflect on their own writing processes? • Do students determine which pieces of their work will be published? • Is the class given the responsibility, the time, and the resources for publishing?
