IUPUI uses two electronic portfolios to demonstrate assessment and achievement of core learning outcomes. The student portfolio engages students in mastering six Principles of Undergraduate Learning (PULs) and provides data for assessing achievement of these PULs. The institutional portfolio documents learning at individual and aggregated levels, drawing on the student portfolio for authentic work and aggregated information. Together, the two portfolios comprise a focused, complex system of documenting and improving learning processes and achievements.
