Abstract

This chapter focuses on implementing electronic portfolio systems into institutions of learning. In particular, the chapter discusses a particular model of portfolio implementation used at Purdue University Calumet for candidates graduating from the education administration master’s degree and licensure program. The chapter also presents current research and varying viewpoints surrounding the issue of putting professional and performance-based portfolios into electronic formats. Practical aspects of the technology and personnel resources needed to implement the model portfolio process, as well as caveats and alternative methods, are presented, as well as the outcomes and opinions expressed by both the candidates and by local superintendents who would consider hiring them as building administrators upon graduation. Additionally, the reader will find other models and resources for implementing electronic portfolios in his or her own institution and program where portfolios for evaluating candidate and student performance are being used or considered for the future.
