National Education Association, Washington, DC.
In the Teacher-to-Teacher series of the National Education Association's Professional Library, teachers speak directly to other teachers about school restructuring issues. This volume covers issues in student assessment, focusing on student portfolios and their uses in reflecting student processes, collaboration, and literacy. Various portfolios techniques are reviewed in the following articles: (1) "Taking Assessment Matters into Our Own Hands" (Laura Grosvenor); (2) "The Manhattan Assessment Project" (Lisa Bietau, Barbara Maughmer, and Joyce Crill); (3) "Schoolwide Portfolios" (Donald Daws); (4) "Literacy Portfolios in the Early Childhood Classrooms" (Cheryl Polakowski); (5) "A Jump Ahead: Living with the KERA (Kentucky Educational Reform Act) Portfolio Assessment" (Virginia Biles); and (6) "Assessing a Teleproductions Course" (Terry Kekic). Each section contains space to record teacher reflections on the chapter, and there are 22 reproducibles for use in portfolio construction and management. A glossary is included. (Contains 32 references.) (SLD)
