Below are 2 examples of portfolios.
The first is a sample of a portfolio from MIS 3536 last fall. It is a strong project with good content. The portfolio could be graphically much stronger.
Below is an example of a portfolio produced for another class. It is an example of a graphically strong portfolio.
Below are the instructions for the final portfolio to be produced and submitted by each team on December 10th.
I have also provided a link to the peer evaluation form to be completed by each of you. Complete a form for YOURSELF and EACH TEAM MEMBER.
Each team must produce a final report/portfolio documenting your proposal. It should be about 8-10 pages in length and it must include a written description of the proposal and photographs or other graphic representations to fully explain your idea. Use the Design Inquiry questions as a framework to structure your paper.
The report/portfolio must communicate your ideas clearly and thoroughly so that anyone reading it will fully understand your project proposal without you there to explain it. It will serve as a report to help evaluate the quality of your proposal and also as a record for you about your project. There are no specific criteria for format or style other than 8.5”x11”/8-10 pages. Your graphics should support your ideas and help communicate them to the reader.
The portfolios for MIS 3536 are due by 4pm on December 10th. Please put them in my mailbox in 209 Speakman
Each group will turn in one submission that includes:
1 hardcopy of the portfolio
1 cd containing a pdf copy of the portfolio, your powerpoint presentation and your prototype.
Each person must also submit their evaluations in a sealed envelope on December 10th. Please follow the directions on the attached form.
I am looking forward to receiving the portfolios and seeing how you have documented the work.
