In this investigation digital portfolios were introduced as a means to improve student achievement in a math and science elementary classroom. By introducing digital portfolios, and analyzing data from surveys, questionnaires and assessment scores it was suggested that digital portfolios increase student engagement in math and science through self-monitoring, reflection and having a useful container for tasks in math and science. Portfolios also increase student interest in math and science and scores on unit assessments. Lastly, teacher best practices were also influenced positively through the treatment of digital portfolios in a fourth grade classroom.
