This paper analyzes the effects of making student work public. Using a custom e-portfolio system, students were selectively shown peer work. Student work on public and private work was of roughly equal quality. Post-tests show a slight (non-statistically significant) decrease in retention for public assignments. Originality tests found that most incidents of plagiarism were the result of copying Internet websites and not peer work. This project has implications for faculty concerned about the effect of public work on student learning.
