Assessment without Boundaries for Learning without Limits
It’s been said that solar eclipses represent new beginnings, and so it’s especially fitting that today we announce the launch of Portfolium Assessment, marking a new beginning and a very big day for Portfolium, our partner institutions, and millions of students around the world.
Every student deserves an education that will help them meet their goals:
- Academic goals
- Life skills and interpersonal growth (aka Student Success)
- Career goals
Our partner institutions seek to ensure that their curriculum yields certain competencies or “student learning outcomes” that align to academic, student, and career success.
To truly fulfill our mission to connect learning with opportunity, we had to fill a missing link by connecting learning to competencies, which in turn lead to opportunity.
Here’s how Portfolium is helping universities measure competencies at massive scale:
- We make sure every student has a free-for-life profile
- We make the assessment process radically intuitive and easy (see our customers)
- We sync Portfolium with each institution’s existing software portfolio (LMS, SIS)
By removing all barriers to adoption, ease of use, accessibility, student and faculty buy-in, and integration, Portfolium is truly enabling assessment without boundaries: Jailbreaking assessment from the niche confines of random departmental rollouts to ubiquitous, campus wide adoption. This is what we mean by “assessment without boundaries”.
Students deserve to get what they pay for, that is, to know that every course has been designed by educators who have looked at student learning outcome data in order to determine which themes, modules, and methods are most effective, and which ones aren’t.
Portfolium Assessment allows universities of any size and any budget to deliver more effective learning opportunities so every student can get the quality education they deserve without being limited by technological or any other constraints.
