The Process and Product of Portfolio Construction.
Berry, David M.; And Others
The Ohio Consortium for Portfolio Development was established in 1988 as an interinstitutional research effort to integrate portfolio development into teacher education. In addition, a sub-phase focused on portfolio use by entry year teachers in a metropolitan school system. The three founding universities, located in southwestern Ohio, are: Central State University, the University of Dayton, and Wright State University. Preliminary findings indicate strong student support for portfolio development commencing in the sophmore year. Evidence also suggests that portfolios are of help in developing classroom management skills, content pedagogy, command of subject matter, student-specific pedagogy, and professional responsibility. The results suggest a need for further research relative to administrative uses for staff recruitment, selection, and professional development. A brief description of each university's approach to implementing the portfolio process in its teacher education program and a portfolio executive summary (draft) are included.
