e-Portfolios for Psychology Majors
What is an e-Portfolio?
An e-Portfolio is a unique tool that allows you to track your own growth as a student. You can use your portfolio to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and growth to graduate admissions committees, potential employers, etc. The department will also use these portfolios as a tool to assess effectiveness, which is beneficial for professors, the administration, and for students.
Psychology portfolios are centered around around the five goals of the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major: Knowledge Base in Psychology, Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking, Ethical and Social Responsibility in a Diverse World, Communication, and Professional Development. The department portfolios are designed to help you demonstrate these outcomes. Specific requirements and suggestions are detailed in the information sheet.
Where can I go if I have questions about my e-Portfolio?
If you're having trouble figuring out how to navigate or add to your e-portfolio, or if you have any questions about the psychology department's requirements, feel free to contact the psychology department's Assessment Coordinator Dr. Lindsey Osterman: firstname.lastname@example.org
