What Teachers Want To Know about Portfolio Assessment.
Morton, Johnnye L.
Based on questions asked by teachers in classes, workshops, and conference sessions, this paper provides brief answers to eight of the most frequently asked questions about portfolio assessment. The questions answered in the paper are: (1) What is a portfolio?; (2) What should be put in the portfolio?; (3) How much should be put in the portfolio?; (4) How do I find time for portfolios?; (5) Are checklists available?; (6) How can I give letter grades if I use portfolio assessment?; (7) How do I start a portfolio?; and (8) How can I communicate to parents and administrators? The paper concludes by stating that portfolio assessment is an evolving concept and that teachers must continue to experiment, talk to other teachers who use portfolios, and read professional journals in a continuing effort to develop meaningful, acceptable literacy assessment.
