We gathered structural information about the Clemson general education eportfolio as well as students' views of the ePortfolio's educational, professional, and assessment values. Fifty-one students who had completed the ePortfolio were interviewed, and they reported minimum structural content (artifacts and rationales) in their ePortfolios. Participants rated the usefulness of the ePortfolio as very low. However, they rated the ePortfolios as "accurately" describing their capabilities significantly higher. Participants with a major program ePortfolio rated the values higher than those without. We are currently interviewing undergraduates who have not completed the ePortfolio to determine if their plans and expectations are more positive than students who have actually completed the ePortfolio."
