Hi Brian,

We are in the midst of trying to ramp up assessment portfolios for our general education goals. I have CCed Kathy Pusecker from the Center for Educational Effectiveness and Nancy O'Laughlin from the Sakai support team at Delaware.

Nate: I'd love some pointers to Portland State's initiative.

Best Regards,

Brian, one of the best portfolio review processes I've heard about that comes close to what you describe was the long-established process used in Portland State's University Studies general education program. Although they didn't use Sakai to facilitate the process, I can think of several ways that might happen.

I can describe it generally, and/or hook you up with others who know it intimately if you'd like to talk about it in more depth.

Is anybody using OSP or other Sakai tools (project sites?) to organize college reviews for accreditation. We are trying to get a pilot off the ground  but we are running into problems when we start to think about assembling and assigning a sample of student papers  (which are both random and anonymous) to a group of faculty reviewers (each paper is reviewed by one person in three different departments).  Does anybody have experience with these challenges? Or, does anybody have an alternative method we might ask the school to consider as we build out this pilot?

Thank you,
