To show that e-portfolios utilized as evidence for project-based learning are more beneficial than written portfolios.
- Observe a class in one year attempting a project-based-learning task and then survey that class on how beneficial the learning was utilizing written and printed 'folder portfolios'.
- Observe a class the next year doing the same project-based-learning task and survey that class on how beneficial the learning was utilizing online e-portfolios.
- Compare the two survey results and draw conclusions from them.
- Draw my own conclusions based on the quality of portfolios and learning achieved from one year to the next.
- Write a report on my findings.
My project will be achieved when I have completed the report showing method, findings, and drawn conclusions, linking those conclusions to pedagogical learning theories and styles.
Peer assessment? Presentation of findings.
Benefit to CPIT:
With tertiary education heading towards e-learning in a big way, my findings could go a long way towards establishing good academic processes for student assessment and also be a guide for tutorial staff to utilize when designing and implementing e-learning assessment projects.
