EUFolio – Project Update

Presented by: Ben Murray & John Hurley

Story – The EUfolio project has worked with teachers in authentic classroom settings in order to ascertain the potential of the e-portfolio platform in supporting assessment. The project draws on the synergy between formative assessment practices and digital technologies through the use of e-portfolios in the classroom, thereby promoting and building capacity in assessment practices. Throughout the pilot phase, teachers and students have worked collaboratively to develop valid, reliable and consistent assessment tasks and the e-portfolio platform has been used to promote formative feedback, peer assessment and student reflection.
