Creating Innovative E-Portfolios for Lifelong Learning and Evaluation: An Assessment Tool for Career Planning

Ehsan Samiei and Caro Lucas

Abstract—While many educational institutions struggle to find the perfect assessment to evaluate student content knowledge, they may lose sight of the next step – lifelong learning. This paper will focus on how the creation and implementation of e-Portfolios can help to prepare senior undergraduate students to design and realize future career pathways with the use of this electronic assessment tool. In particular, this paper will illustrate how one university has changed their focus in evaluating student learning in a strategic approach to incorporate a new type of “capstone” course for business undergraduate students. As a result, there are still students leaving educational institutions not fully prepared as to how to approach the job hunting process. This particular academic tool has been helpful for the instructor to evaluate the students’ abilities and skills to apply content knowledge gained from the core business administration programs, as well as prepare students for their next career endeavor.

Index Terms—Assessment, e-portfolio, lifelong learning, and online learning.
