Abstract: Portfolios are becoming increasingly popular both in the assessment of writing as well as a mode of assessment to measure teacher learning. In this paper I will describe a portfolio used for measuring student learning outcome in four partially web-based courses in a university in Hong Kong. Students had completed web tasks set by the teachers, put in journal entries to record what they had learnt, and regularly participated in web-based bulletin board discussions of key issues. To create the portfolio students were asked to choose 3 or 4 items from the range of work done on the web to show what they had learnt from the course. The data consisting of an analysis of the portfolios created and interviews with 22 students indicate that learning portfolios have the potential for bringing in a reflective dimension in assessing student learning in online classrooms.
