Motivation and emotion/Assessment/E-portfolio/Feedback
The mean mark was 68/100 without late submission penalties and 66/100 after late penalties.
One good way to get further feedback about the e-portfolio exercise is to look through some which attained a high grade. Also note that feedback about each e-portfolio can be found on the respective talk pages.
Here's a list of some very good e-portfolios:
Below are some general comments about this exercise.
- Overall, the e-portfolio appeared to serve the purpose of facilitating independent student learning and providing evidence for marking purposes about the depth and breadth of learning engagement. Many students commented that they found this open e-portfolio to provide deeper learning than more common assessment tasks (such as exams). Many commented initially about technical fears (how to) and several noted that they needed to unlearn "wiki is bad" attitudes they had learnt through other units.
- The best portfolios provided more reflection (e.g., personal examples, ideas, responses) about the unit's learning activities.
- Weaker portfolios tended to provide brief summary notes about content, with relatively little reflection.
- The strongest portfolios included responses to tutorial exercises. Where students didn't attend, there was response to the recorded lectures, readings and provided notes.
- Weaker portfolios tended to have a slow start to semester and/or to peter out, often around 2/3 of the way through semester.
