ePortfolio Containers

Portfolios serve a variety of purposes:

  • working portfolio
    • contains current projects and/or ones recently completed
  • display portfolio
    • contains samples of the student's best work
  • assessment portfolio
    • contains work that illustrates that the student met learning goals.
The type of portfolio we use with our students depends on their ages and our purpose in using portfolios in the classroom. Once we have decided which type of portfolio our students will create we need to select the container (i.e., the application that will hold the contents).

In the days of paper portfolios the containers were usually notebook binders. Today they are more likely to be websites.
