new iconLook here! There's a draft set of common rubrics for assessing digital portfolios!!!

Digital portfolios at the K-8 and 9-12 levels are ideal demonstrations of competence, as they can show how students competently use technology tools and resources within the context of core content areas.

Grades K through 8 - The ideal ICT Literacy Program in grades K-8 weaves technology experiences into all content areas and all grade levels, so that a student can demonstrate ICT competency at the end of 8th grade. In order to meet New Hampshire’s ICT standards, schools which currently provide a middle school course in computer literacy should review their course requirements to ensure that assessment rubrics applied to digital portfolios are being used. Such courses should not be considered stand alone courses, but rather opportunities to support content instruction with technology rich experiences.

High School - The ideal ICT Literacy Program in high school provides courses which allow students to focus on information and communication technology experiences that match their career aspirations. High school courses should be reviewed to ensure that topics listed in 306.42(c) are addressed and that a prerequisite for such courses is the completion of a digital portfolio as required in 306.42(a)(5).

This way, students know which artifacts they can or cannot choose when assembling their portfolios.
