Abstract: A study of undergraduate student experience with class syllabi revealed several concerns for improvement in areas directly related to General Education and assessment strategies using electronic portfolios. We report several student interests and suggestions, including the need for consistent syllabi that contain information designed to promote success in classes. Students report that faculty members teaching General Education courses have not adequately engaged in helping them with electronic portfolio requirements. Results of this study suggest that better communication, through carefully constructed syllabi, is needed to connect students and instructors to the importance of General Education and the use of electronic portfolios for assessment and student documentation of learning.
