Abstract: This paper documents a yearlong pilot study, conducted by teacher education faculty to evaluate methods for creating, sustaining, and assessing teaching portfolios. Selected issues with paper-based and software-based programs are compared. Key design, instructional, and procedural problems that arose during the pilot are discussed as well. The preliminary findings of this study appear to support the need for a flexible electronic portfolio system in which students play a key role in the design, development, and content of their portfolios as well as the need for a clearly articulated academic purpose and requirements for the teaching portfolio.
