The power
of portfolios
made easy

Students

We love building collections of work and displaying them online. Real audiences make us want to do our best and it’s rewarding to see how our work improves over time.

Teachers

We appreciate how easy it is for students to manage their own portfolios and how engaged it makes them. It’s also handy that we can use the same tool for our own evaluation portfolios.

Administrators

It’s rewarding to provide students with a safe, secure place to showcase their work. Being able to control what is published, and to whom, is reassuring.

A Workspace and Showcase

Exibi engages students with a workspace in which to manage their learning, including archiving work, organizing it, reflecting on it, discussing it, evaluating it, and improving it. It also provides a showcase in which students can share skills, interests, and achievements relevant to particular audiences.

Collection and Selection

Using simple tools in Exibi’s workspace, it’s easy for students to bring together work—in any format—to create meaningful Collections. Doing so involves students in a process of selection that encourages them to think about the qualities of each piece of work, how it is related to others they have produced, and how it can be useful in demonstrating targeted learning achievements.

Reflection and Self-Direction

In the privacy of the workspace, students feel comfortable reflecting critically on their work—its strengths and weaknesses, their ways of working, challenges faced, and things they could improve. This leads to goal setting and self-direction as students manage and modify their collections. Such skills are essential for lifelong learning.

Skills Banks

Drawing from one or more skills banks, including a 21st century skills bank, students can use Exibi to make claims about their learning achievements. They are encouraged to point to parts of their work that provide evidence that their claims are founded. At the discretion of their teacher, this self-awareness may be translated into shared assessment practices, giving students a voice in the evaluation of their work.

Exhibits

An exhibit is created to showcase one or more collections of work. Students choose work for their exhibits with a specific purpose in mind, for example, to share best work with parents, to show improvement over time, or to provide information about skills—including verified 21st century skills—to an employer or college admission personnel.

Resume

Students may choose to create a formal presentation of achievements and experiences using a resume. A resume may include links to work samples that illustrate the achievements listed. Like an exhibit, a resume must be approved by an educator before it can be published.

A Unique Approval Process

Tools built into Exibi ensure that nothing can be published to the showcase without approval by the teacher.

Safe, Secure Publishing

The Exibi showcase provides a secure online environment in which students can safely present their exhibits and resumes to authentic audiences. Teachers and administrators effectively control what is published and to whom. This essential feature sets Exibi apart from other portfolio products, and makes it the perfect tool for K-12.

Why Exibi?

Authentic Assessment

Many teachers are looking beyond traditional tests for new ways through which their differently talented students can show what they know and can do. Exibi provides a way for students to present not only their learning achievements but also their personal achievements and to take a part in evaluating their work.

Personalized Learning

To plan personalized learning paths, teachers need to have a holistic picture of each student. Using Exibi, students have a voice in developing this picture. They do so by sharing exhibits that showcase their academic and personal achievements, experiences, and interests.
