Graduate Students’ Attitudes Towards the Use of Electronic-Portfolios in the College of Educational Sciences at the University of Jordan
Dr. Mansour Alwraikat

The purpose of this study was to probe graduate student' attitudes towards the use of e-portfolios. The study sample consisted of 90 students, and survey methodology was employed to collect data through a self-administered questionnaire. Content validity was achieved by submitting the questionnaire for review by experts in the field of educational studies and instructional technology in Arab Countries before the final version was sent out to the participants. Reliability was ensured by computing the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of the internal consistency. The students expressed positive attitudes toward the use of e-portfolio in all areas (awareness, works and activities, and advantages and disadvantages). There were no significant differences in attitudes across gender and academic specialization in the BA, but there were significant differences in attitudes across academic degree (in favor of PhD students) and computer skills (in favor of students with high level of computer skills).
