British Journal ofEducational Technology, 35: 717–727 ABSTRACT: This article considers the various uses of e- portfolios in an educational context and looks at the particular characteristics of the electronic version of portfolios. It then focuses on the application of the e-portfolio as an assessment method. A case is made for the use of the e-portfolio as an appropriate end of course assessment process where learning objects are the basis of the course design. Evaluation data from such a course is presented. This is a post-graduate online course run by the Institute of Educational @t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, LearningTechnology at the Open University.

  24. 24. Case studies There are 6 case studies presented in the JISC publication, two for each perspective: Learner, Practitioner, Institutional Choose a case study, while reading make note of:  Lessons learned  What would you want to replicate?  What challenges might you face?  We will come back and share@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University

  26. 26. Some ePortfolio tools Mahara Google Sites Collection of tools http://www.acenet.edu/Content/NavigationMenu/P rogramsServices/cii/res/assess/eportfolio1.htm Helen Barrett‟s online portfolio adventure (constructs the same portfolio in different tools to show differences) http://electronicportfolios.com/myportfolio/version s.html#18@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University
  27. 27. Assessing ePortfolios What do you want to assess?  The individual artefacts?  The ePortfolio as a whole, developed over time?  The way the students interact with each other? (Commenting, reviewing, collaborating)  The presentation of the ePortfolio? (Design, navigation, ease of use) Who do you want to do the assessing?  Students can self assess, peer assess (commenting) When do you want to assess?  Formative assessment: Could provide feedback at timed intervals, asking to students to upload@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University
  28. 28. Keep in mind:You might not want to assess the ePortfolio, it mightbe used as a file folder for artefacts that areassessed previously… let the pedagogy lead thetechnologyInstitutional pushes for ePortfolios might be lookingfor a „file folder‟, „showcase‟, option.

  29. 29. Rubrics for ePortfolios Generic rubric for ePortfolios, adapted from (Vandervelde, 2004) http://www.danwilton.com/eportfolios/rubric.php General rubric from Saltlake Community Collegehttp://www.aacu.org/meetings/annualmeeting/AM12/documents/hubertGeneralEducationePortfolioHolisticAssessmentRubric.pdf University of New South Wales explains issues in assessing ePortfolios http://teaching.unsw.edu.au/printpdf/535@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University
  30. 30. Peer Assessment Need to scaffold the practice of commenting, go beyond the „Like‟ button phenomenon Set guidelines: netiquette, how many times you want them to comment, appropriate quality, quantity, and content Model good „commenting‟ behaviour Types of comments: summarising, critiquing, comparing, continuing the conversation, praising… „Comment‟ can mean many things!@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University
  31. 31. Feedback Set guidelines for formal and informal feedback (don‟t want to feel like you need to comment on everything and at the same depth). Be wary of Feedback Overload! Give students notice when you will be dropping in to give formal feedback, give them a chance to tidy up With Mahara you can control who sees what you write, so feedback can still be one to one Feedback, feed forward, feed up@t_eloise Dr. Eloise Tan, Learning InnovationUnit, Dublin City University
