e-Portfolio Basics: What to include in an e-portfolio?
A portfolio should include the following elements:

  • Student Information: name, contact information, major, graduation date, etc.
  • Table of Contents: or various way to display links to contents of the portfolio
  • Learner Goals
  • Curricular standards and/or criteria: used to align the contents of the portfolio to institutional, departmental or course curriculum (often accomplished by rubrics)
  • Rubrics: can be used to assess student work. A rubric is a criteria-rating scale, which provides the instructor with a tool to track student performance. They also inform students of the course/departmental/institutional expectations.
  • Guidelines: used to select appropriate artifacts to keep the collection from growing haphazardly
  • Artifacts: examples of student work including documents, images, video, audio, etc. (can be chosen by student, instructor or both)
  • Instructor feedback
  • Self-reflection pieces: a portfolio without reflections is just a multimedia presentation or an electronic resume
