Abstract

In this paper, we describe the preliminary findings of a qualitative research of the implementation of e-portfolio assessment in Hong Kong schools. The ten teachers interviewed revealed that e-portfolio assessment is an instrument that allows students to understand their learning progress and growth. It requires time to accomplish, and considering that the learning activity is carried out in a short period, the method turns out to be a way of piling up files. It also serves as a reference to show students' performance when they apply for quota in secondary school. The culture of compiling actively using e-portfolio has not been formed, and the use of e-portfolio as an assessment tool has not been realized.
