This study surveyed twenty-three deans of schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDEs) thought to be mature or accomplished users of electronic portfolios. An analysis of their responses revealed that 56% of SCDEs adopted electronic portfolios program-wide two years ago or longer. The two most frequently cited purposes were for accreditation and student learning. Most SCDEs had a history of paper portfolio use prior to adoption of electronic portfolios and most used a commercial web-based system rather than off-the-shelf tools such as an HTML editor. Implications of the study are discussed and additional questions for further study are suggested.
