Abstract

This research focused on the analysis of 14 teacher educators' standards-based electronic portfolios developed during their participation in the Teacher Educator Standards Cohort (TESC). The analysis focused on participants' articulated purposes and what comprised their portfolios in relation to artifacts and narrative. We concluded that TESC members expressed several different purposes for developing their portfolios and that the use of artifacts varied in degree and range of addressing the standards and/or indicators. Further, to provide context and meaning to their portfolios, participants relied on descriptive paragraphs to tie artifacts to indicators and purpose and took little advantage of the electronic medium to communicate these. Overall, there was little evidence that indicated that these teacher educators had a strong orientation to what an electronic portfolio should look like. These findings suggest implications for teacher educators' work with teacher candidates.
