This article presents the research carried out on student teachers’ attitudes towards collaboration in ePortfolios at the Ibiza campus of the University of the Balearic Islands. An on-going ePortfolio project was implemented in September 2009 throughout our different Teacher Education programmes. Changes have been introduced to the project design based on initial research findings. Data collection is carried out with the first and the last graduation classes that have worked on the ePortfolio project. This research allows us to observe any changes in student teachers’ attitudes towards collaboration in ePortfolios due to improved scaffolding as the project progresses.

When considering implementing educational change there are three important questions that must be addressed, regardless of what the proposed change may be. First, we must reflect on why change is needed and have a clear understanding of the issue. Then we must investigate the most appropriate innovation for addressing the identified problem and finally we must consider the actual process of change itself. The purpose of this paper is to examine each of these questions through the lens of system-wide assessment reform; exploring how a more future-focused rendition of an ePortfolio can provide an innovative answer to the challenges facing current assessment practice in senior secondary compulsory education.
