Roberts, P., Farley, H. and Gregory, S. (2014) Authentic assessment of reflection in an ePortfolio: How to make reflection more ‘real’ for students. In: ASCILITE 2014: Rhetoric and Reality, 23 - 26 November 2014, Dunedin, New Zealand
In a doctoral study that focused on the enhancement of reflection through an ePortfolio-based learning environment, students’ indicated that they felt reflection was not real when it was used for assessment. This led to an examination of assessment practices linked to reflection and ways to make it authentic. The literature revealed that reflection is often a component of authentic assessment rather than being a focus of it. The practices associated with the assessment of reflection are examined in order to formulate 4 guiding principles. These principles aim to make the process of reflection more ‘real’ to students in higher education settings, particularly when using an ePortfolio platform.
