Support for Students

The ePortfolio team supports students in creating and building strong and well-polished Core ePortfolios as well as in completing the assessment depositing process.


Assessment Depositing Resources for Students

The ePortfolio Program supports students with the assessment depositing process. This section contains information about why the College is doing this and provides you with resources to do this on your own or with on-campus help.

LaGuardia's Core Competencies and Communication Abilities focus on the 21st century learning skills you need for a Bachelor's degree, a good job, and life-long learning. They ask you to develop your ability to use knowledge from your classes in new ways, building the thinking and problem solving skills that colleges and employers value. LaGuardia has identified three Core Competencies and three Communication Abilities all students in all majors should build at LaGuardia:

There are two simple things you need to know to complete the assessment process for your course:

  1. You will need the CUNYfirst code for the course you need to complete the assessment for.
  2. You will need to know the assignment(s) you need to deposit and the competency each falls under. Please note that some classes may require you to deposit one assignment or more.

On campus: The ePortfolio Program has open labs during the last two weeks of the semester. Feel free to come on a walk-in basis to get help. Click here to see the schedule.

Off campus: You can do this on your own either following this quick guide or the video below

If you need help with depositing your assignments into the assessment area, there are a couple of things you can do. If the questions relate to which assignments you need to deposit, you will have to contact your professor to obtain that information. If you need help with depositing a file, visit the ePortfolio Help Desk in MB-57 to get help.


Build a Stronger ePortfolio

We work hard to help students build strong ePortfolios. To do this, feedback is critical. Now, you can submit their ePortfolios and request feedback from an ePortfolio consultant. This feedback can be on a number of different aspects of your ePortfolio including the design, content, media, and others. Although the ePortfolio consultant will provide general feedback on your ePortfolio work, the feedback will not be about specific assignments or projects that were originally assigned by a faculty member. To request feedback, please click here.
