Abstract

Texas's online career portfolio management tool for high school students participating in supervised agricultural experience programs (SAEPs) was developed in 1998 by a committee of Texas high school teachers of agriscience and Texas Education Agency personnel. The career portfolio management tool reflects General Accepted Accounting Principles and Farm Financial System procedures. It also includes the essential data necessary for students completing the application for the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) American FAA Degree. In 1999, more than 4,500 revised record books were distributed to Texas and out-of-state agricultural education departments participating in the pilot test. After receiving input from stakeholders, the committee decided to develop an online record book. The electronic record book was pilot tested in spring 2001. The electronic record book became available during the 2001-2001 school year. The electronic record book is an "anytime and anywhere" management portfolio provided users have access to a World Wide Web browser. The career portfolio management tool has been shown to meet the needs of students in SAEPs and give teachers significant opportunities to acquire and use computer-based telecommunications skills. Students with computer technology backgrounds seem to accept the tool well, but only if teachers given them access to the online record books. (Contains four references.) (MN)
