Explores the issues and choices faced by a Teacher Education Program during its progression from a paper-based, to a low cost, web-based electronic portfolio system, and finally to a database-driven comprehensive Information Management System. In 2000, students admitted to the Teacher Education Program at Colorado State University – Pueblo, were required to maintain a standards-based paper portfolio that was reviewed during the three stages of the Teacher Education Program (admission to education, admission to student teaching, and program completion). In 2001, entering students began to build their portfolio on the web using off-the-shelf software. In 2002, development began on a comprehensive database driven Information Management System that includes the portfolio system. In 2003, students will use the comprehensive Information Management System to develop and maintain their portfolio. The different purposes, requirements, and tradeoffs of each portfolio system are presented.
