Assigned Portfolios

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Assigned Portfolio allows instructors to require a Portfolio as the submission for a course assignment. This is not a separate type of Assignment; it is simply a new option on the existing Assignment capability. You can attach a Rubric to a Portfolio Assignment to assist students and your graders with the evaluation criteria.

How to Create Portfolio Assignments

  1. Select Assignment from the Assessment button.

Create Assignment

  1. On the Create Assignment page, expand Submission Details in the Grading area.
  2. Select Portfolio Submission. You can choose a template students should use in their portfolio submissions.

Portfolio Submission

When students submit a portfolio assignment, you will be viewing a snapshot of the portfolio from the time it is submitted. You may want to consider selecting Multiple Attempts or Unlimited Attempts for the submissions. If you choose Unlimited Attempts, students will be able to continue to submit snapshots of their portfolio up until it is completed so you can track the students’ progress on their portfolios.


Grade Portfolio Assignments

When a student has submitted a portfolio in response to an assignment, the portfolio is viewable in the assignment grading interface. You can download the portfolio as a compressed ZIP package of HTML files.

Note: Grading feedback, rubric results, and rubric feedback provided in the grading sidebar is separate from portfolio comments. This information is stored independently as part of the assignment attempt—not as part of the portfolio or portfolio snapshot itself.
