Title:Developing and Integrating a Student Portfolio and Portfolio Assessment Process into a Graduate Level Degree Program: A Pilot Study
Authors:Fulkerth, Robert

Abstract:A university is at the beginning of implementing a portfolio assessment process. For students, the portfolio is evidence of their skills; for the institution, they help determine the extent to which students' course work has given them the skills and outcomes named in program and course objectives. Another important purpose is to provide artifacts for accreditation activities. To support institutional accreditation, programs have articulated program and course objectives, matching program objectives to specific courses and analyzing the current state of those relationships. That assessment work socializes active discussions and activities on higher-level program/course issues. It is also providing a practical grounding in articulating criteria and relationships in ways that will support the implementation and utilization of student portfolios. Some portfolio and assessment background is presented. A mature process found at the University of La Crosse is described, which provides which provides a focus for beginning our current portfolio development. The challenge of creating programmatic learning outcomes-specific criteria as requirements for inclusion in the portfolios is discussed. We have not accomplished this articulation, but believe that accomplishing it will provide significant specificity that can be of service to our accreditors, faculty, students and the institution as a whole.
