This project demonstrated techniques that employ electronic multi-media applications in the capturing of student performance data in an electronic portfolio. This action research project had its base in a computer assisted design for the stage course. Students working in the area of theater design created three dimensional images of settings on the computer, then created models of these images using balsa wood, foam core, and other materials. Their analysis of the plays, the computer models, and Quick Time images of their constructed models were gathered via Microsoft Word 5.1 to create an electronic portfolio. The action research project sought to define a clear picture of the hardware and software needs for the creation of electronic portfolios. It also measured, on the local class room level, the effectiveness of such efforts in comparison to the traditional "brown paper catch all" portfolios prominent in many schools today.
