Portfolios and Your Child: Some Questions and Answers for Parents and Families.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
Noting that portfolios contain the students' best efforts at writing and mathematics problem-solving skills, this pamphlet discusses issues surrounding Vermont's portfolio assessment program from the parent's point of view. The pamphlet discusses reasons to use portfolios, how portfolios differ from traditional ways of looking at students' writing and math skills, what goes into a portfolio, how portfolios are evaluated, how the results of portfolio assessment are used by various entities, special needs students, and what parents and family members can do to help.
