Does the Reflective Introduction page strategically employ multimodal elements such as images, videos, audio files, and/or links in addition to the text?   
  • 2.Does your portfolio include an Artifact 0: Does the Artifact page include the Common First Week Video, any process documents, an introductory paragraph, and “Artifact Reflections” a-e? Can users play the video? 
  • 3. Does your portfolio include, Artifacts 1-3 (Visual Rendering, Literary Analysis, and Podcast): Do the Artifact pages 1-3 include the final draft of the Artifact, all process documents, the introductory paragraph, and “Artifact Reflections” a-e? 
  • 4. Does every page of the portfolio “efficiently use the affordances of the medium”? In other words, does the design and layout of your portfolio take audience into account?
