EE/CprE 494 – Fall ‘09 Instructors: Vicky Thorland-Oster, Tony Moore Why Portfolios Excerpts from the ISU Catalog: “Students are required to prepare and to maintain a portfolio of their technical and non- technical skills. This portfolio is evaluated for student preparation … results of the evaluation are used to advise students of core strengths and weaknesses.” Excerpts from: “The Use of Student Portfolios in Engineering Instruction” Christy, Ann D. Ohio State University Lima, Marybeth. Louisiana State University "Engineering Criteria 2000 cited the student portfolio as a possible means for meeting criterion three: program outcomes and assessment. Shackelford defined the student portfolio as a 'purposeful collection of materials capable of communicating student interests, abilities, progress, and accomplishments in a given area.' Portfolios are a useful tool in assessing learning because they require students to review their work and engage in a process of reflection, selection, and description. A portfolio is a means of documenting the student's thought process in identifying her/his motivation for choosing engineering, choosing areas of interest and learning fundamental concepts involving engineering design. The portfolio was interpreted by students as both a requirement for the course and a method to help them in their quests to be engineers.” - Journal of Engineering Education (April 1998) PORTFOLIO USES 1. Writing a resume, job application, or transfer application. 2. Obtaining scholarships, internships, co-ops, research opportunities 3. Keeping your personal goals in mind. They may change as you learn and grow so you may need to adjust your portfolio accordingly. 4. Applying to graduate schools: filling out applications, information for interviews, determining what type of program you want to enter. 5. Applying for a job: filling out applications, information for interviews, determining what type of position you would be best suited for. 6. Showing yourself how much you have learned, accomplished, and achieved. 7. Practice professional accountability. Employees are continually asked to show how their work provides impact to the company.
