Digital portfolios are a great way to showcase student work and progress throughout the year. You or your students can easily create digital portfolios using Google Forms.
For the teacher, this is an excellent way to track growth and keep a collection of assignments as data.
First, make a Google Form for each student. Create a question and choose ‘file upload’ as the question type. This allows you (or your students) to upload any file from the computer or from Google Drive.
You can even digitize and collect paper copies of student work by scanning them and uploading to the Google Form. Even easier, you can use a scanning app right on your phone – they work great.
Links to digital work can be submitted from a ‘short paragraph’ question form. Written samples an be typed directly into a long paragraph question.
In order for students to have access to the contents of their portfolio, click on the ‘settings’ image at the top of the page (looks like a cog). Under the general tab, at the bottom, check the box ‘see summary charts and text responses’.

Each time a student adds to the portfolio and submits, their cumulative wok will be available to them to see.
