Electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) are more than a repository for students to store their best work. When developed with the guidance of faculty and advisors, critically analyzed by the student, and shared with others, ePortfolios serve as a dynamic high-impact learning practice. They provide an opportunity for students to examine the caliber of their work, and reflect upon what they have learned. The tool enables students to assess the progress they have made over time and how they have grown, and also make connections within their learning experiences. Electronic portfolios provide details and evidence of learning that a traditional transcript cannot offer. However, ePortfolios must be developed thoughtfully and intentionally to serve as an effective tool for reflection and critical analysis.
