Douglas et al. (2004) claim that webfolios "may have the most significant effect on education since the introduction of formal schooling. When fully matured and implemented by capable professional educators throughout every discipline in an educational institution, webfolios promise a viable alternative to current, high-stakes testing, which focuses education on test-taking rather than teaching and learning. The promise webfolios hold - a richer educational experience for all - will not be realized, however, unless educators embrace webfolio concepts and apply them at their highest level of maturation."
 
 
 
The authors consider eight physical and theoretical qualities inherent in portfolio/webfolio processes and applications to determine five levels of maturation:
 
* Level 1\u2014Scrapbook
 
* Level 2\u2014Curriculum Vitae
 
* Level 3\u2014Curriculum Collaboration Between Student and Faculty
 
* Level 4\u2014Mentoring Leading to Mastery
 
* Level 5\u2014Authentic Evidence as the Authoritative Evidence for Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting
 
:The levels of maturation for portfolios/webfolios provide a conceptual framework for understanding webfolios and help readers position themselves in a particular level of webfolio development. The levels also provide conceptual guidance for taking the next step on the path to full implementation of webfolios in teaching and learning. (Douglas, 2004)
