Abstract: This article details a case of using ePortfolios in the evaluation process and assessment of the Department of Communication at the University of Hawai‘i at M ā noa. The program is guided by seven SLOs (student learning outcomes), which are demonstrable skills or abilities that students are expected to possess before receiving their degrees. The SLO framework was implemented in our department with the intent to promote effective learning through the application of a cohesive curriculum that was designed by faculty members. In 2013, we evaluated our program to assess its successes and shortfalls through ePortfolio s as an assessment tool. The assessment findings noted gaps in our curriculum, along with a need to improve specific processes, such as better alignment of learning outcomes with the assessment rubric. Overall, we found that the ePortfolios and the assessment process in our senior capstone courses ensure the value of the curriculum over time and serve as agents for cultural change within the department.
