How do I import artifacts to a collection and create a sample set?

Artifacts are sample work, typically course work submitted by students, that can be used to measure the effectiveness of a program. Artifacts are the materials which reviewers will be evaluating for the program assessment. Artifacts can be imported from Portfolium Course Assessment courses, uploaded from a device, or imported from a Learning Management System.

After importing artifacts you can create sample sets, which allows for assessment of a subset of the total number of artifacts uploaded to the collection.

Define Sample Set Strategy

Define Sample Set Strategy

In the Sample Set strategy window, you can select an option to determine the size of the sample set. Available strategies include:

  • Suggested: This strategy uses a statistical formula to find the minimum sample size for a statistically relevant sample set. This model uses a 5% margin of error, a 95% confidence level, and a 50% response distribution.
  • Percentage: This strategy allows you to set a percentage value to create the sample set. The sample set will be created as the supplied percentage of the overal number of artifacts within the collection. You can enter the percentage in the Sample Size field.
  • Absolute: This strategy allows you to provide an absolute value (number) and the sample set will be created as the supplied value of the overall number of artifacts within the collection. You can enter the value in the Sample Size field.

To select a strategy, click the radio button next to the strategy name [1], enter a value in the sample size field [2] (if needed), and click the Create Sample Set button [3].
