Outcomes Assessment - Emerging Stage

Many of the campuses in the C2L network placed themselves in the emerging stage of using ePortfolio for outcomes assessment. On these campuses, ePortfolios are currently not used for department-wide or institutional outcomes assessment. The topic may be in the air – for example, a few professors may be experimenting with course-based ePortfolio assessment, and/or there may be conversations underway about broader use. But the institutional culture and practice around outcomes assessment does not currently involve using ePortfolios.

More often, individual faculty members will ask students to develop an ePortfolio to demonstrate that they have met the key goals of the class. Read more [...]
