A University Pre-Service and Elementary School Portfolio Project: Reporting the Collaboration, Procedures and Reflections.
Hoag, Constance L.; And Others
This paper reports on the implementation of an educational collaboration project providing 40 preservice teachers with training and experiences in authentic/performance based portfolio assessment. Three professors and a public school teacher designed and facilitated activities in portfolio establishment and assessment for university students working in an elementary classroom. Pre-classroom experiences for the university students included training in rubric and calibration development, as well as specific oral reading, fluency, comprehension, word recognition/analysis, and story retelling procedures. While the time commitment required by professors and teachers to carry out the program was at first underestimated, overall evaluation of the program found it to be highly effective and popular with all participants. Benefits of the project from the preservice teacher perspective included training in design and implementation of authentic/performance evaluation processes, as well as interaction with elementary students and the opportunity to participate in establishing a cross-educational collaboration model. Benefits for participating elementary students included self-analysis, individual enrichment, attention and encouragement. (PB)
