George Kuh, AAC&U and NILOA have all identified as the 11th validated High Impact Practice:  ePortfolios.  For Kuh’s announcement of this, see:  “ePortfolios –The Eleventh High Impact Practice,” http://www.theijep.com/pdf/IJEP254.pdf [theijep.com]


The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has made the evidence-based decision to expand its set of ten high impact practices by one. The triangulation of the research from multiple sources has led to this decision, and the evidence in support of the efficacy of ePortfolios has been steadily, concertedly growing over the past decade.
