New developments and advancements in informational technology bring about several alternative avenues for educators to select in supporting and evaluating their students' learning. Online portfolio is a fairly new technique in this regard. As the online education grows, use of online portfolio becomes more vital for educational programs. At Virginia Tech, in the program of Instructional Technology Master's of Art Degree (ITMA), an online portfolio evaluation course is designed with the goals of reviewing and evaluating students' achievements throughout their master's degree education as well as evaluating the program itself. Evaluation standards put forward by Association for Educational Communication and Technology (AECT) are used as a framework in developing this course. In this presentation, we first discuss types and content of portfolios and design principles for creating portfolios. Next, we describe the portfolio evaluation course and explain briefly evaluation processes involved in the course. We then discuss AECT standards and how the portfolio evaluation course was informed by these standards. Succeeding the close examination of this course and its use for the Virginia Tech case, we discuss which regulations and standards should be considered in order to successfully apply this online portfolio evaluation course in educational institutions in Turkey.

The implementation of National registration requires Australian and New Zealand Nurses and Midwives to perform annual Continuing Professional Development. They must also document evidence of skills acquisition, activities, reflection, identification and prioritisation of their learning needs in a portfolio. With the global trend towards e-Portfolios, many higher education institutions encourage the use of e-Portfolios as a tool to enhance learning and demonstrate career development. Nursing and Midwifery Portfolios: evidence of continuing competence 2e has been thoroughly revised with a focus on e-Portfolios to provide tools to structure, reflect, plan, develop and communicate professional achievements for nurses and midwives. A new chapter on Reflection highlights the value of including reflection within portfolios as a critical element towards addressing learning needs for individuals. Australian and New Zealand regulatory frameworks: By providing direct application to the local regulatory context, including applied examples, this book gives the reader the opportunity to understand the perspective of their local regulator – thus assisting them in producing a product that addresses the needs of the regulator. A range of portfolio approaches: Through understanding a range of portfolio approaches, the reader can gauge which approach best meets their needs. Examination of the nature and role of evidence: This assists the reader to understand the need for a range of evidence and how the different types of evidence contribute specific aspects necessary to substantiate the broader argument of competence. Through the use of quality evidence, the reader can compile a more compact but effective portfolio. Performance and career planning: The direct link made in this book between portfolios, performance and career planning means that the value of this book extends beyond being a tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Rather this text is designed to assist a range of clinicians and managers, in assisting them either plan their own careers, or influence others in developing careers inline with the future needs of their organisation. Primary market: Undergraduate Nursing and Midwifery students Secondary markets: Practicing Registered Nurses and Midwives. Also applicable to other health science students undertaking courses leading to regulated health professions.

Improving Writing and Thinking through Assessment is designed to help individual faculty and administrators select assessment approaches and measures to maximize their students’ writing and thinking. The book offers useful guidance, through presentation of recommended assessment guidelines and measurement principles in Part 1 and applications from a variety of contributors in Part 2. It addresses a wide range of audiences, including instructors who want to assess and thus foster writing and thinking in their courses, administrators and instructors planning to assess writing and thinking at the program or institutional level, and graduate students interested in improving students’ writing and critical thinking. This book is more guide than a “cookbook.” By providing comprehensive standards and criteria that help individuals or teams develop plans and measures to improve writing and thinking, the book should be helpful for academic and Student Affairs administrators and faculty as the principles apply equally to all engaged in assessment. Contributors, representing a wide range of educators, illustrate many of the approaches and methods described in the theoretical section of the book using a variety of assessment strategies at both classroom and program levels. Readers will see how different types of institutions, both private and public as well as undergraduate and graduate, have designed assessment strategies and plans to gauge and enhance writing and thinking growth in the classroom and across programs. They candidly describe challenges encountered and solutions they adopted or suggest. These chapters reflect approaches and perspectives from various discourse communities – including writing program administrators, composition faculty, assessment professionals, and individual faculty representing several disciplines. The author argues the urgent need to develop strong writers and thinkers. She discusses challenges and obstacles, but underscores the necessity for more faculty involvement and institutional commitment. This book will help institutions and individual faculty design and implement sound, meaningful assessment strategies to foster effective writing and thinking that will both advance the goals of the institutional mission and meet faculty’s disciplinary objectives and scholarly concerns.
