Uniting Two-Year and Four-Year College Programs through Portfolio Assessment.
Wauters, Joan K.; And Others
A roundtable session at the 1992 Conference on College Composition and Communication explored the effects of portfolio evaluation on composition students, English faculty, and departmental administrators at two- and four-year campuses of the University of Alaska Southeast. Faculty from both four-year and two-year campuses found that portfolio evaluation encouraged their students to revise more often and more extensively. From an administrative standpoint, portfolio assessment has had a beneficial effect on the curriculum and on faculty relations. Eight handouts provide: (1) a detailed description of the procedures for the assessment of students' portfolios by the English faculty at midterm and at the end of the course; (2) a portfolio scoring guide; (3) questions for in-class writing during one particular week of the semester; (4) a juror's rating sheet; (5) the midterm portfolio evaluation form; (6) a writing tutor review sheet and referral form; and student comments about the portfolio assessment process on (7) the Juneau campus and (8) the Ketchikan campus of the University of Alaska Southeast.
