Federal accountability standards in the United States are making electronic portfolio assessment a high priority for educational organizations. The evolving digital nature of school environments encourages the development of web-based assessment systems. The primary objectives of this e-portfolio system presentation are: (a) to incorporate digital tools into teacher courses; (b) to provide instructional and curricular opportunities that promote collaboration and communication; (c) to provide students with digital tools similar to the ones they use in their personal lives; (d) to determine student and faculty e-portfolio technology use satisfaction levels; and (e) to assess the impact of integrating technology into the courses on student achievement. Presentation attendees will be exposed to multiple forms of electronic portfolio tools, assessment strategies, student work products and reflections of the investment process involved in integrating e-portfolio systems into higher education.
