Duties & Responsibilities

ePortfolio Review and Approval Process

The ePortfolio for the Master’s degree in Library and Information Science consists of 4 written reflections of learning at key stages of the program accompanied by supporting artifacts of student work. (See http://si.arizona.edu/sites/si.arizona.edu/files/ePortfolio_1.pdf). Eportfolios are currently hosted in Google Apps for Education on Google Drive. After students have completed a reflection and posted it, the evaluators will have access to the reflections for review and comments. If a reflection meets requirements (i.e. length, content, associated artifacts), a comment indicating approval will be added by each reviewer. If the reflection needs revision, a comment detailing the revisions needed will be added by one or more evaluators. Reflections should be approved by two evaluators. After all reflections are approved and a tracking worksheet is completed, a School of Information fulltime faculty member will review the entire ePortfolio to see that it meets the graduation requirements.

In addition, students enroll in a one-credit ePortfolio course in their final semester to provide time to complete their final reflection and make any final revisions, complete the e-portfolio tracking worksheet, and finalize self-paced exercises and assignments that include resume-writing and interviewing skills.

Evaluator Responsibilities:

  • Work as a team under the supervision of a designated faculty/staff supervisor to schedule and review reflections as they are submitted by students in a timely manner (no later than within 1 week of notification that a reflection is completed and ready for evaluation).
  • The evaluator will provide feedback as to whether the reflection has been approved or needs revision. Evaluation rubrics will be provided.
  • Provide summary reports to School of Information staff as to reflections approved or needing additional work, and other information as needed.
  • Collect, analyze and summarize data from the e-portfolio tracking worksheets to inform program review, and other data collection, analysis and reporting needs of the School of Information.
  • Under the direction and supervision of a designated faculty member, create, administer and grade exercises and assignments for the ePortfolio course relating to resume-writing, interviewing and other subjects to be determined.
  • Other tasks and duties related to the ePortfolio as assigned.
  • Submit timely completion logs of hours worked.
