Assessment Rubric

In evaluating the success of the e-portfolio assignment, the Cornerstones Program Assessment committee will consider the following categories:

Requirement/Expectation

Emerging

Proficient

Exemplary

Selection of Artifacts; artifacts and work samples are clearly and directly related to the purpose of the e-portfolio. All required artifacts are present and each Cornerstones learning objective is demonstrated via a range of artifacts.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Descriptive Text; all artifacts are accompanied by an explanatory caption or description, including title, author, data, and other relevant information.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Citations/Documentation; all images, media, and/or text created by others are cited accurately using a consistent format.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Navigation; the website navigation links are intuitive and the sections of the portfolio are clearly labeled and organized to help the reader easily navigate the material. All pages connect to the navigation menu and all links function correctly.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Usability and Accessibility; the e-portfolio is easy to read with clear headings and subheadings (distinguishable from body text). Font styles, page layouts, and backgrounds are clear and consistent.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Audience; the e-portfolio is carefully designed with a particular audience in mind. In the first through third years, this will be the student, their peers, and the larger university community (the goal is reflective, to demonstrate learning). In the third and fourth years, this will be constituencies in and beyond the university who will evaluate the student’s professional potential.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Writing Conventions; there are no errors in grammar, capitalization, punctuation, or spelling.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Multimedia Elements; all media (including images, videos, sound files, etc.) are carefully chosen and appropriate for the purpose of the e-portfolio or individual artifact. Video and audio artifacts are properly edited for quality (volume, picture quality, etc.). Efforts should be made to make media accessible via alternate text and image tagging.

0--1--2--3--4--5--6--7--8--9--10

Note that the expectations outlined above apply only to the design and organization of your e-portfolio. Specific portfolio documents (e.g., the 101 and 190 common assignments, the 201 and 202 artifacts, and the final reflective essay) will have distinct prompts and assessments.
