Scaling Up at Boston University: ePortfolio and Assessment at the College of General Studies


In 2009, Boston University’s College of General Studies (CGS) received funding from the Davis Educational Foundation to assess its general education program using Digication, an ePortfolio platform. Since 2009, each CGS student has maintained a single ePortfolio for all CGS courses, and our college’s Writing Committee (chaired by C2L member Gillian Pierce) developed a rubric of learning outcomes for our program and an assessment score sheet. During the summers of 2012 and 2013 we conducted an assessment of over 100 student ePortfolios each summer and now have collected and evaluated two years of data about our program. The results are encouraging in that they seem to suggest that student improvement in our program is above the national average.
