20201016T1200 20201016T1345 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Electronic portfolio as a learning and assessing tool: Findings from an action research

In English language teaching, the use of portfolio is particularly applicable not only as a learning tool to increase the level of students' motivation and autonomy but also as an evaluation tool for reviewing the status of their progress. Applying the action research approach, this study primarily focused on examining the perceived effectiveness of using electronic portfolio to improve academic reading and writing skills in an EAP blended course. Results from an open-ended questionnaire and teacher's diary revealed that students' perception of the purposes of the e-portfolio is similar to teacher's initial goals. Most students gave positive responses toward the application of e-portfolio as an effective learning tool and showed satisfaction to their own products. Meanwhile, the main difficulties mentioned by most students were the search and selection of articles for reading and time constraint. Some student's suggestions in terms of e-portfolio implementing procedure and support from teachers as well as teacher's self reflection are worth considering for further application.
