Alverno's Diagnostic Digital Portfolio

This first-of-its-kind, web-based system enables each Alverno student — anyplace, anytime — to follow her learning progress throughout her years of study. It helps the student process the feedback she receives from faculty, external assessors and peers. It also enables her to look for patterns in her academic work so she can take more control of her own development and become a more autonomous learner.

The Diagnostic Digital Portfolio (DDP) is built on Alverno's student assessment-as-learning process, making it more transparent to the student and others who seek to understand this important educational program. It also provides actual, accessible performance data with which graduates can create an electronic resume for potential employers or for graduate schools.
