After compiling empirical evidence of ePortfolio’s effectiveness, we felt that others should benefit from the fruit of our labor. The purpose of this website is twofold:
- to make empirical evidence regarding ePortfolio’s effectiveness more accessible to researchers and practitioners; and
- to community-source the task of keeping this database up-to-date.
What can you find on this site?
This database (or “archive”) consists every peer-reviewed journal article we could locate that focuses on ePortfolio. We included only refereed journal articles in this database, as our purpose is to locate and compile evidence that has been formally reviewed by experts in the field. Thus, no books, conference presentations, white papers, etc., can be found on this site.
To best illustrate trends in the current landscape of ePortfolio research, we also categorized every article to reflect inherent themes: (a) Descriptive; (b) Technological; (c) Empirical, Affective; (d) Empirical, Outcomes; and (e) Empirical, Assessment and Evaluation. Feel free to peruse the database by category of research and/or keywords, locate reference information, read abstracts, and link directly to articles.
Who is this tool for?
We designed this site to benefit multiple parties: Practitioners who are looking to implement ePorfolio and are seeking information on best practices, as well as researchers gathering information.
