Northeastern University – Are We Who We Think We Are?


This promising practice focuses on the use of ePortfolios for formative assessment in the redesign and development of academic degree programs. In 2011 Northeastern instituted an ePortfolio requirement for students enrolled in the university’s Master of Education program. Systematic review of these student ePortfolios as a collection has informed planning for the 2012-13 Masters program redesign.

This redesign includes the articulation of a vision for program outcomes, competencies, integrated program course map, and shared foundational courses across four concentrations. Program redesign implementation will include ePortfolio requirement revisions to improve outcomes transparency for students and better course-level ePortfolio integration.
