Portfolio Assessment. Professional's Guide.
Seely, Amy E.
This book discusses and highlights portfolios as an alternative assessment practice in the classroom. Chapters in the book address such topics as aspects of portfolios beyond a collection of student work; what to consider when evaluating portfolios; the different types and purposes of student portfolios; issues involving management and ownership of the portfolio; professional development portfolios; and integrating portfolio assessment throughout the curriculum. Throughout the chapters in the book are examples of ways to integrate portfolio assessment practices into the classroom. Sample forms are included to provide various useful possibilities for both teachers and students. The underlying focus of the book is to encourage discussion about ways in which portfolios can be successfully implemented as alternative assessment practices in classrooms. (NKA)
