Accommodating Assessment and Learning: Utilizing Portfolios in Teacher Education with Preservice Teachers.
Zollman, Alan; Jones, Deneese L.
Within the past several years of education reform, portfolios and other types of performance-based assessment have come to be recognized as viable alternatives to standardized tests. This report discusses insights gained through the use of portfolios at the university level with preservice students and their field-based experiences. Although portfolios can be used in other disciplines, the examples in this paper highlight uses in mathematics, and point out benefits in areas such as problem-solving, and helping students to become reflective.
