Electronic Portfolios and Student Success: Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Learning

  • Helen L. Chen and 
  • Tracy Penny Light

Given that learning occurs in many places, takes many forms, and is exhibited through many modes of representation, how can the implementation of electronic portfolios enhance student learning and assessment? To explore this question, the authors focus on eight key issues: defining learning outcomes; understanding your learners; identifying stakeholders; designing learning activities; including multiple forms of evidence; using rubrics to evaluate e-portfolios; anticipating external uses of evidence; and evaluating the impact of e-portfolios. Campus case studies are included.
