Developing Student Portfolios for Young Children: A Grading, Marking and Reporting Alternative That Fosters Communication with Families. A Conference Paper.
Gelfer, Jeffrey I.; Perkins, Peggy G.
Student portfolios provide information for the teacher, help children question and reflect on their work, communicate progress and growth to parents and teachers, and are useful in developing and evaluating children's school programs. To obtain a more adequate notion of what a student portfolio is, it is useful to ask five questions: (1) What do portfolios look like? (2) How is a portfolio organized? (3) What contents are included in a portfolio? (4) What type of selection process could one use to determine the portfolio's contents? and (5) How will the portfolio be evaluated and reported? These questions are discussed. (RH)
