Abstract

Abstract: This paper is a report on the development of an e-portfolio program for a Midwestern university's teacher education program. The research was a three-year comparative case study of four principals representing rural and urban schools and included pre-kindergarten through 12th grade levels. School administrators identified portfolio perceptions, key elements, and format of professional teaching portfolios for use during the teacher hiring process. A computer program was designed to assist undergraduates with the construction of their professional teaching portfolios. As teacher education majors used the electronic portfolio program, they presented their portfolios in floppy disc, compact disc, zip disc, or web-based formats. This paper identifies the research, problem solving process, and continued problem solving for implementation of professional teaching portfolios into a software program for use with teacher job search and program improvement.
