Why we chose to use e portfolios l.jpg
Why we chose to use e-portfolios?

  • To help initiate more support for integration of materials across the curriculum

  • To assess higher-order skills or outcomes not easily measured by exams such as community service learning projects

  • To help students reflect on their personal accomplishments
