E-Portfolio Peer Review for Adriana Sandoval

Written by John M. Ferrer


Instructions: Complete the questions below. Be honest in your
evaluation. We all understand that you are basing your evaluation on
guidelines provided in the e-portfolio assignment memo, along with
your opinion of what is rhetorically effective and what is less so. Be
sure to answer all of the questions.
Complete and return this peer review to the writer by midnight. Keep a
copy for yourself; this should be uploaded to your own e-portfolio.
1. Does the e-portfolio have the required components described in the
e-portfolio assignment memo? (Most of the reflections will be in the
blog). Which, if any, are missing.
Whatoughttogointomyeportfolio?
At a minimum, you should have a homepage, an about me page, a
page for this course (all of your course projects should be included,
along with reflections [Ill provide you with questions to guide your
reflections.], and a page for at least one other course. Your e-portfolio
site should include a blog, too. Last, I strongly suggest that you also
include a resume.
E-portfolio meets majority of required components.
2. Homepage: Write a short paragraph, describing your sense of the
person represented there. Then, write a paragraph describing your
suggested changes.
There was not a whole lot to be gathered from the home page it
couldve used a little something to draw the audience in. All it really
needs is the addition of a small mission statement or something to that
effect in the beginning to clarify the intent behind this e-portfolio.
3. About Me: Write a short paragraph, describing your sense of the
person represented there. Then, write a paragraph describing your

suggested changes.
The person represented here seems very much like a girl wanting to
show the world what shes accomplished in hopes that it will bring her
greater challenges. The only changes I would suggest are possibly
making the bio more descriptive and include more information about
yourself as it will help add to the credibility of the bio.
4. 3365 Course Page: If you did not know anything about this course,
would you understand what the course is about, beyond the title of
Workplace Writing? Why or why not? What could the writer do to
make this clear to the audience? Are the documents associated with
different projects grouped together? Has the writer described the
project, its goals, and what they learned in completing the project?
To a certain degree. All she requires is a short description detailing
what it is RWS 3365 is all about.

5. Additional Page for Another Course: If you did not know anything
about this course, would you understand what the course is about,
beyond the title of Workplace Writing? Why or why not? What could
the writer do to make this clear to the audience? Are the documents
associated with different projects grouped together? Has the writer
described the project, its goals, and what they learned in completing the
project?
Aside from actual course descriptions, Adriana does a good job of
showcasing multitude of her assignments from multiple classes.
6. Blog: If you were not a member of this class, would you understand
the blog postings? Why or why not? Do the blog posts feel mechanical
to you? That is, do they sound as if the writer wrote something just
because it was assigned? What might the writer to make their blog
posts seem more genuine?
Even if I was not a member of the class I feel like the blog posts are
understandable to
common person. However they do feel slightly contrived she should try

to emphasize her own personal feelings and thoughts throughout the


writing.
7.

Readability: Is the website easy to read? Are paragraphs chunked, so


that there is not just one or two long paragraphs? Does any text fill the
width of the page? Do color choices or images interfere with being able
to easily read? What suggestions do you have for the writer to make the
site even more easily readable? Readability was excellent. Words do
not blend in with background. Could use a little more space in between
to keep paragraphs from looking crammed together.

8.

Archives: Are files and images appropriate for the site? Has the writer
chosen wisely in how they are using these to tell a story about
themselves? What suggestion do you have for the writer? Yes. My only
suggestion is to organize the files in such a way that provide for easy
navigation.

9.

Visual Design: When you look at the different pages that comprise the
e-portfolio, it is clear that they are all part of the same website? How do
you know this? Do the visuals connect closely to what the writer is
saying with text? Why or why not? Are the colors used appealing?
What sort of mood do the colors suggest? The colors suggest a
professional atmosphere, minimalistic theme supports straight to the
point attitude. All pages of the site are similar to the point of
background uniformity which also alludes to an overall business-like
vibe.

10.

Navigation: Is it easy to find information across the website? Do the


pages indicated in the navigation bar actually have content related to
the page titles? What suggestions do you have for the sites navigation?
Yes. No suggestions.

11.

Recommendation: If you were this persons future professor or future


employer, how would you rate this person as a student or potential
employee, based on how they have represented themselves in the eportfolio? 5 Extremely credible and thoughtful about their
experiences4 Credible and thoughtful about their experiences3
