The purpose of this project was to develop an instructional workbook for pre-service teachers to develop their digital portfolios using Adobe Acrobat software, in response to California Commission on Teacher Credentialing requirements. The print-based workbook provided step-by-step guidelines for use in the development, maintenance and distribution of teachers' professional portfolios. Content was developed from subject matter expert interviews, needs and content analysis, and existing materials on Adobe Acrobat software and professional portfolio development. The workbook was evaluated through expert reviews, one-on-one learner validation, and a peer review field test. Data were collected to ascertain the usefulness of the workbook through interviews and surveys. The result of the evaluation indicated that this workbook was an effective tool for helping pre-service teachers to develop their professional portfolios and as a subsequent resource for portfolio development and software use.
