Abstract—This study highlights the development of
e-Portfolio as a writing assessment in an advanced English
language course for undergraduate students at a public
university in Malaysia. The e-Portfolio was developed using an
instructional design model known as ADDIE (Analyse, Design,
Develop, Implement, Evaluate). A pilot test that involved 43
students was conducted in the Develop stage and qualitative
data were gathered using open-ended questionnaires to
determine the e-Portfolio’s impact. The pilot test findings
proved that the e-portfolio was functional and operating as
intended. The students responded positively to the e-Portfolio
features with the exception of the peer preview. The findings
also revealed that a majority of the students voted for
e-Portfolio to continue to be implemented in the future. The
study serves as a reference for instructional designers who are
keen to introduce new educational tools in the language
classroom. It also established that the e-Portfolio is a promising
assessment tool for second language learners in higher
