Moving Ahead with ePortfolio (MAeP)

Moving Ahead with ePortfolio (MAeP)


The purpose of this project is to determine whether integrating a rubric into teaching methodology improves student retention and learning. The rubric chosen for this project is the AACU Integrative VALUE Learning Rubric because project leaders feel that its categories (Connections to Experience, Connections to Discipline, Transfer, Integrated Communication, & Reflection and Self-Assessment) reach across diverse curricula and match well with other ongoing campus projects such as mTc and SWIG.

The MAeP project asks teachers to progressively modify two class assignments over four semesters, adding new rubric-categories each semester, finally resulting in the implementation of the entire rubric. Student artifacts will be collected using the ePortfolio environment and scored using the AACU rubric, and the data will be entered into a database for institutional analysis and study. Collected student artifacts will also be scored by an independent group of faculty and students will use these same artifacts to build their ePortfolios.

For the Fall 2011 the project has 25 participant faculty members; ~500 students; ~1000 artifacts
