This study investigates how implementing a Web portfolio assessment system influences learning effects, including achievement and self-perceived learning performance. The experimental group uses the Web portfolio assessment system, whereas the control group uses conventional assessment. Study subjects are junior high school students in two computer classes. The experimental results are as follows. The Web portfolio assessment system has no significant influence on student achievement. Implementation of the Web portfolio assessment system significantly enhances self-perceived learning performance. The Web portfolio assessment system has different effects on work achievement and self-perceived work performance. The system has no significant effect on improving achievement for poorly and highly motivated students. However, the system is more effective for overall self-perceived learning performance of poorly motivated students than highly motivated students.
