A Rubric for Digital Portfolio Assessment

Next week I am working with a group of teachers to help them start creating digital portfolios with their students. After we decide what we want students to include in their portfolios and the platform for the portfolio we'll start looking at the assessment aspect. To help get that conversation started we'll be looking at the electronic portfolio rubric created by Joan Vandervelde at the University of Wisconsin, Stout.

We probably won't use the rubric created by Joan Vandevelde exactly as written. Instead, we'll use it as a way to get the conversation rolling about what aspects of a digital portfolio are important to these particular teachers and their students.

The teachers with whom I am working use G Suite for Education so we'll eventually use Google Sheets to create the final draft of the digital portfolio rubric. The Online Rubric add-on for Google Sheets makes it easy to format a rubric. Watch my video to learn how to make a rubric in Google Sheets.

Rubrics for Assessing Wikis, Blogs, Podcasts, and Digital Portfolios

The University of Wisconsin, Stout has organized a nice collection of rubrics for assessing digital projects. In the collection you will find rubrics for assessing student blogging, student wikis, podcasts, and video projects. Beyond the rubrics for digital projects there are rubrics for activities that aren't necessarily digital in nature. For example, you can find rubrics for writing, research, and oral presentations.

Applications for Education
These rubrics might not fit perfectly with the projects you're students are working on, but they could provide a good starting point for creating your own rubrics. Perhaps you could show the rubric you're considering to your students and ask them for their input as to what they think is important to be evaluated in their projects.
