I am brand-new to moodle but not to Linux and the technologies that it runs on. As a middle school technology coordinator I have had staff ask me about setting up eletronic portfilios of student work.
Specifically, we would like each student beginning in grade 5 be able to login, upload samples of their work in various formats (word, excel, ppoint, inspiration,etc). We want teachers to have access to student work and we want each kid to keep the same account on moodle through the 8th grade.
Staff could then periodically assess students as they move from one competency to another. We plan to assess technology skills using work that grows out of subject areas. The idea being that the kid needn't create a phony document to show that he knows how to set tabs, etc., just submit a writing piece from language arts, etc.
I know that this is possible (acknowleding that it is not using the full capabilities of the moodle) but would like to hear if anyone is doing this yet. If not, any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
