Final year project or dissertation is one of the core requirements of the curriculum offered at higher education institutions, with an aim of assessing the qualification for an academic level by providing students with an opportunity to apply what have been studying in a practical, effective, efficient and beneficial manner. Aligned with the intended learning outcomes, teaching and learning activities and assessment tasks are inseparable in the teaching and learning process. Meanwhile, portfolio assessment is a new alternative assessment method when compared with traditional written assessment which collects students' work in the learning process to demonstrate one's effort, progress and achievement in one or more areas. The purpose of this paper is to study the strategy of adopting eportfolio as a formative assessment method for final year project and evaluate the effectiveness of e-portfolio assessment, where the strengths and restrictions will be analysed. The result illustrated that the implementation of e-portfolio assessment for final year project helps instructors to review the teaching and learning process effectively while giving students timely feedback for improvement.
