Follow the following steps to add evidence to a matrix within the Sakai ePortfolio system:

1. Login to the Sakai/e-Portfolios system using your pawprint and password.

2. Select the site for which you want to add evidence to the matrix by clicking on the site tab. Then, click on the Matrices link on the left-hand menu. This will bring up a list of available matrices created for the site on the screen. (See, Fig. 1)

3. Select the matrix for which you want to add information by clicking on the matrix name. The matrix allows you to provide evidence of learning or other achievements in criteria, standards, or skills according to different levels of ability or areas of activity. A matrix cell may also contain a custom form to be completed. (See, Fig. 2)
