Good morning:


I’m attempting to collect some data for a research paper regarding campuses/schools that have elected to use a portfolio/assessment solution in lieu of a course management system. That is, the campus/school has abandoned a CMS and gone completely to a portfolio/assessment application to deliver course content. (The benefits are, of course, longitudinal data collection vis-à-vis rubrics and other outcome performance metrics.) Portfolio/assessment solutions include, but are not limited to: TaskStream; LiveText; Mahara (open source); FolioTek; Epsilen; etc.


My questions are:

·         Are you using an eportfolio/assessment application (exclusively) as your course delivery system?

·         If so, can I contact you and ask some specific questions regarding that adoption/transition?


Thanks in advance,
