This action-research paper focuses on the efforts of faculty to introduce a standards-based electronic portfolio (e-folio) requirement to aspiring educational administrators at a private university in New York over a 24 month period. The e-folio initiative was established for multiple reasons, including illustration of students’ progress throughout the educational leadership program, assessment of their work and improvement of program quality. In this standards-based e-folio, students demonstrate competencies in leadership. Various instructional approaches were utilized to coach the 40 aspiring administrators in e-folio construction. E-folio products (n=83) were compared to a standardized rubric. Analysis of the data (quantitative and qualitative) resulted in several instructional changes and improvements, which were derived primarily from the application of an advanced learning system known as the Let Me Learn Process® (1996; 1998).
