  • Spreadsheets are the standard spreadsheet applications which can be imported from an exisrting Microsoft Excel or Open Office spreadsheet file.
  • Presentations are the standard slide show application which can be imported from an existing Microsoft Powerpoint or Open Office presentation file. Other people can be sent the URL for the presentation, and they can view the presentation in real time.

Students create presentation portfolios at different benchmarks to showcase their achievement of outcome, goals or standards. This tool is a web page creator, where students can link to different documents created in GoogleDocs or uploaded as another document type, such as PDF. There is a limit of 100 MB of uploaded files, which should be plenty of space, especially if images are stored in Picasa and videos are stored in YouTube.There is also no data management tool, to aggregate assessment data. There is not an interactivity feature to this program, such as found in a blog or wiki. Therefore, this tool would work for a presentation portfolio but not for formative or summative assessment.This tool has been discontinued by Google, replaced by Google Sites.Google Sites is Google’s version of a wiki, released in February 2008.

Therefore, this tool would work for both a presentation portfolio and for formative or summative assessment.
