2 What is an Electronic Portfolio?
A portfolio is a purposeful collection of student work that exhibits the student's efforts, progress and achievements in one or more areas. The collection must include student participation in selecting contents, the criteria for selection; the criteria for judging merit, and evidence of student self-reflection. Educators in the Pacific Northwest, through the Northwest Evaluation Association (1990)

3 Electronic Portfolios…
Are selective and purposeful collections of students’ work Focus on students’ reflection of their work Provide records of learning, growth, and change Provide meaningful documentation of students' abilities Provide information to students, parents, teachers, and members of the community about what students have learned or are able to do Represent a learning history Teachers and students may construct portfolios in literacy and writing, science, math, the arts, or any other subject area in the curriculum. Portfolios may also be more inclusive, containing samples of work across curricular areas. Portfolios bring together curriculum, instruction and assessment. Through the use of portfolios teachers and students can develop a shared understanding of what constitutes quality work, and acquire a common language for evaluating students' accomplishments. The use of portfolios lead to classrooms that are student-centered rather than teacher-centered, because students accept more responsibility and become agents in their own education. Students should be able to choose the types of samples that will be placed in their portfolios. There is growing use of portfolios in the classroom in the form of files or notebooks. The electronic portfolio, however, is a new option allowed by the increase of technology in the classroom, providing yet another perspective on what students can do. Electronic portfolios can include varied media such as text, graphics, video and sound, going beyond just paper and pencil work. After all, products on paper constitute only a small portion of what the student produces in a school year.

4 Why use Electronic Portfolios?
Fosters active learning Motivating for students Effective instruments of feedback Effective instruments of discussion on student performance Easily accessible Can store Multiple Media Allows cross-referencing of student work Electronic portfolios foster active learning. Effective instruction should be more than something "delivered" to students. Students become active learners only when they assume ownership and control of their learning. There is little reason for students to develop ownership of standardized test scores filed away in the office. Portfolios help students to set goals for learning, review their goals periodically, and assume responsibility for their own learning. They also allow parents to be informed partners in their child's learning. Electronic portfolios motivate students. Displaying their work to anyone on the WWW is much more motivating for students then producing for the teacher. Students like to display their work, and now the technology allows them to display their work to the entire world. Electronic portfolios also encourage students to engage in periodic self reflection, a very important component of learning. Electronic portfolios are instruments of feedback. Electronic portfolios allow for the evaluation on the efficiency of learning goals, the effectiveness of learning strategies, and the clarity of knowledge presentation. Put together, this leads to a system of feedback where several processes in the educational cycle may be evaluated simultaneously. Not only do they provide feedback to students, but they also create a means for exchanging feedback between teachers, and the administration. Electronic portfolios are instruments of discussion on student performance. Portfolios may serve as concrete instruments for teacher-student, parent-teacher, and parent-student discussion. It is possible to gain a better understanding of a student's abilities by examining the student's work. Thus, parent conferences take on a totally new definition through electronic portfolios since portfolios can provide a more detailed picture of the student's achievements than test scores and letter grades. Electronic portfolios allow parents to examine teacher expectations, curriculum standards, the students' achievements conveniently and efficiently. Electronic portfolios are accessible. The major advantage of electronic portfolios over folders and notebooks is that they provide easy access to student performance. Students' learning products are readily accessible to students, parents, administrators, and other teachers over the WWW. This process introduces economy in storage, and ease of access from practically anywhere in the world. Electronic portfolios can store multiple media. Students' writing may be collected easily in notebooks and files. But what about samples of oral reading, a three dimensional model, artwork, a sketch, an animation? By using electronic portfolios it is possible to include examples of all these different media in a portfolio. Electronic portfolios allow cross-referencing of student work The dynamic nature of web-pages makes it possible to cross-reference student work in a meaningful way. Suppose a science project also contains samples of math problems the student solved while working on the project. Paper and pencil portfolios would require that copies of the same work would be filed under multiple headings. Using electronic portfolios, it is possible to create meaningful links between all work that is presented.

5 Steps to Creating an Electronic Portfolio
6. Completed Portfolio 5. Design the storyboard and template 4. Decide what software/hardware will be used Decide on the Content Areas to be assessed: Teachers should never begin a portfolio project without a clear view of their purpose in collecting student work. A question teachers need to answer in beginning a portfolio project is, "What should I collect?" Portfolios are not meant to include everything that students produce. Therefore, before starting a portfolio project, teachers should identify the dimensions of learning they wish to display. Decide which Curriculum/State Standards the portfolio will address The emphasis need not be on collecting "best work" when creating a student portfolio. Instead, a wide range of work samples representative of the student's work will allow the viewer to examine progress. Process portfolios demonstrate student work throughout a learning task. At the beginning of the learning task students should answer questions such as: What do I plan to accomplish with this task? How I plan to get there My strategies for accomplishing this task Decide how the portfolio will be organized Portfolios should be organized to reflect an accurate picture of the student's development. A portfolio should include: a table of contents the date of the work description of the task student reflection on the entry Each portfolio entry could have links to the areas of assessment that are involved in the project, or task. Decide what software/hardware will be used Multimedia computer w/microphone Microphones will allow the teacher to record students when reading text Flatbed Scanner You can use a scanner to scan written text or drawings of students’ works Electronic Cameras Electronic Cameras can be used to capture candid or staged shots of students as they are interacting with other classmates You can also use Electronic cameras when going on field trips and scan them into the PowerPoint Software PowerPoint Hyperstudio Appleworks 6 Portfolio Builder Design a Storyboard and template Have a road map to your finished goal. Layout the designs of what you want to include in your PowerPoint. Then use PowerPoint to create the baseline templates. 3. Decide how the portfolio will be organized 2. Decide which Curriculum/State standards the portfolio will address 1. Decide on the Content Areas to be assessed

6 What should I include in a Portfolio?
