May 21, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Seven Western Michigan University students have been recognized for their exceptional computer skills as part of the University's eighth electronic portfolio contest.
The three top finishers were Andrew Luce of Grand Ledge, Mich., a senior art education major; Daniel Priest of Lambertville, Mich., who graduated this spring in secondary education with majors in history and English; and Danielle Stoops of Battle Creek, Mich., who graduated this spring in secondary education with majors in English and political science.
Four students also received honorable mentions. They include Matt Larson of Ludington, Mich., a graduate student working toward a master's degree in business administration; Shawn Schmuck of Sunfield, Mich., who graduated this spring in secondary education with a major in mathematics; Tabitha Sims of Macomb, Mich., who graduated this spring in elementary education, early childhood development; and Lori Willett of Howard City, Mich., a graduate student earning a master's degree in the educational leadership.
The contest was sponsored by the associate provost for assessment and undergraduate studies. Examples of student-created portfolios were solicited during the spring semester, and a team of reviewers from WMU judged the entries. Portfolios were judged according to the students' use of iWebfolio to present personal, professional and academic accomplishments electronically. The seven winners will each receive a cash award.
