Assessment Portfolios

The Learning Portfolio Program supports a number of classes and academic programs throughout the Loyola community. Some programs utilize learning portfolios through the Direct Response Folio (DRF) feature of Taskstream-Tk20, which is primarily used for assessment purposes.

Unlike the live folio page feature of Taskstream, DRFs are faculty created and driven.

DRF's are primarily used for..

  • Assess course or academic program (e.g. major or minor) learning outcomes
  • Document student learning across course content or sections in a comprehensive portal
  • Generate comprehensive reports on student learning outcomes
  • Serve as a means to organize assignments, readings, and course/program content 

Please see the tutorial for an overview of an assessment portfolio using Taskstream's Direct Response Folio (DRF) feature.
